Shobhna Ramakrishnan wakes up one muggy morning with the hangover of a queer dream. Mumbai putrid hellhole of her nightmares is at boiling point. The citys youth is up in arms against fundamentalist homeboys. Shos head is on fire. Meanwhile, Udayan Doshi is on a long flight to Mumbai. Sitting in his lap is a film script thats wrung him away from New York and a new love, back to his hometown and ex-lover. Shos got Uday involved in a bizarre plot that threatens to shake and stir the Mumbai film industry to its very core. At the heart of this scheming is a spectacular film script and a small-town stud boy with big attitude. In a single night of unexpected events, Sho and Uday revisit their relationship and together tumble into a hilarious, surreal world where barbied men co-exist with alpha women in six-yard saris and artists with cheeps on their shoulders dream of the impossible.
