033 is the code for the city of Kolkata. The city stands with its 200 years of musical history culminating in the band movement of the nineties. After years, the city has finally been able to absorb the voices of the young and unpredictable into its closely guarded drawing rooms. This film is a tribute to the efforts of the two centuries that have absorbed themselves with music, reflected here through the band named '033' and its young members. It is a story of how music turns out to be a metaphor of the changing times and emotions for these young people. With its light mood and youthful emotions, the film insists on taking every situation as a celebration of love, life and music like a joyride through the 300 year-old city trying to rejuvenate itself through flyovers and metro rails, shopping malls and mobile phones.
