Their son, Sunny (Shardul Rana) is a teenager, full of hormones and attitude, is romancing the landlord’s daughter, and the grandmother, Biji, played by Dolly Ahluwalia, who is unaware about her 3 decades sleep.

The characters are well structured and direction’s selection of artist for the particular roles, just shows that content works if the casting is right. The aesthetics, dialogues and setting of the film feels right. Despite being a small budget content drama, the film has all the elements that of mega-starrer.
