Three friends turn to crime as a way to make their dreams come true in this dark comedy from director Raja Menon. Shukala (Naseeruddin Shah) is a cab driver in late middle age who hates his boss and wishes he could quit his job. Shukala is friends with Yadav (Vijay Raaz), a security guard who needs money for his ailing son, and Aman (Arjun Mathur), who works in a coffee shop and wants to win the heart of a beautiful woman who's a regular customer. As the three men wonder how they could make some big money fast, an opportunity suddenly presents itself when Yadav gets in a fight with an arrogant stranger. Yadav knocks the stranger out cold and discovers he's the son of a wealthy family; he panics and drags his unconscious victim back to his flat, and soon he and his buddies realize they've already taken care of the first step of a successful kidnapping.
