His roommate, Gagan, swears by the magic of lies and helps him cook up stories to impress the girl. What follows is a roller coaster ride of lies, cover-ups, goof-ups and confusing stories. Shubendu soon starts enjoying it and begins to lie comfortably. But, he doesn’t know when to stop the lies.



Challo Driver

He has a penchant for firing drivers and she has a proclivity for quitting jobs until fate — and an unassuming bet — throws them into a deep end and they have to stick together for a stipulated period of 6 months.



Sparks fly when they have to stay together and romance blooms. Initially, they hate each other’s guts, and the film eventually becomes a journey of two mismatched people learning the all-important lesson of acceptance and sensitivity towards each other, and to their surroundings.
