Synopsis

Shukla, an auto driver from an orthodox Brahmin family, has never intimately known a woman other than the celluloid starlets he watches every day on the 4-inch display of his mobile phone. When his mother arranges his sudden marriage, Shukla and his new wife face the experience of so many couples in Mumbai: a new marriage, no experience in a relationship, and a joint family love nest that offers no space for sex, much less a conversation.

 

Shukla, seorang sopir dari sebuah keluarga Brahmana ortodoks, belum pernah punya hubungan dekat dengan wanita mana pun selain dengan aktris film yang ia tonton setiap hari melalui layar ponsel 4 inci miliknya. Ketika ibunya tiba-tiba menjodohkannya, Shukla dan istri barunya menghadapi pengalaman yang dialami banyak pasangan di Mumbai: pengantin baru, tidak berpengalaman dalam hubungan, dan hidup bersama keluarga besar sehingga tidak punya tempat untuk berhubungan intim, apalagi untuk bercakap-cakap.
