When Himesh Reshammiya stars in a film, it's got to be a musical. Musical it is, but Radio also attempts to explore the man-woman relationship in a metropolis
Radio rests on a thin storyline. Superficially, it's about a couple that goes separate ways, then man meets another woman, later ex-wife develops a soft corner, much later man is torn between the two women. Haven't we witnessed similar themes in the past?
Vivan (Himesh Reshammiya) is a successful RJ on a popular radio channel in Mumbai. He has acquired everything in life but his marriage is unsuccessful. Naturally he takes divorce from his wife Pooja (Sonal Sehgal), the reason cited are lack of compatibility between the two. In their hearts Vivan and Pooja don't want the divorce but the fast pace of life and busy schedules interfere with their emotional balance. Instead of suffering more, they choose to go their separate ways.
Enters Shanaya, who is like a ray of sunshine in Vivan's insipid life. But initially he doesn't realize that Shanaya (Shenaz Treasuryvala) brings a smile to his face. He blatantly discusses Shanaya with Pooja, but being a woman, she can see his love for Shanaya. She becomes the catalyst to bring this realization that his true love is Shanaya. Why has he closed his eyes? His attitude and response towards Shanaya go through a sea of change. Vivan reciprocates and tries to get close to her family too. Although he still has a soft spot for Pooja and cares for her but he realizes that he wants to spend his life with Shanaya.
