Winner of the best directing debut at the Venice Film Festival, the film tells three stories. In the first one, a drone employee at a soulless corporation wins an office competition entitling him to a whole day of fun at the mall. However, he doesn’t have much fun at all. The second story follows a domineering head of a family who suffers a stroke and is on life support. His newly-liberated family buy a TV and are hooked on to a popular soap when they learn to their dismay that the family head is on the road to recovery. And in the last story, a woman who is leading a mechanical existence blossoms when she gets a series of anonymous love letters. These stories explore the different facets of life and society in the maddening city of Mumbai.
