Online @ Offline is all about life. Life with its manifold varieties, its magnificence, its superciliousness, its morbidity and also its flowering glory and triumphant joy.


The story revolving around three adult people and a little girl presents the dualism of life - Online and the other Offline. If online world refers to the virtual world and the world of mind, the offline world is the real one with its share of ups and downs. These two worlds keep on interplaying all through our lives and we just become some characters of our own.


It is an engrossing story of pining, helplessness, belonging, self discovery and more importantly about love, giving much credence to the little things that add up to every moment we live as we realize: Life can never be a tragedy because that would turn everything meaningless, it could never be a comedy even, for that would make life utterly ridiculous. Life, is only a journey which is true - both online and offline, in dreams and non dreams.
