To dream is to live and yet dreams die all the time..
Fortune smiles on those who manage to ride the inevitable flood of opportunity that come ones way..
Luck is a small matter purely dependant on who you know..
Johnny, the coffee boy is a veritable fount of such profundities. He is one of the hundreds of thousands of human beings whose existence seem incongruous in Mumbai, a city seemingly racing against time to mirror Shanghai as the modern day urban utopia.
Unlike most others of his ilk, Johnny however has a master plan for himself. He knows he has to get out. Preferably to the paradise across the Arabian sea – Dubai where he is convinced he will find respect. In the manner of great war strategists across history, Johnny's plan is based on his army – a motley group of three entirely different people.
He feels closest to Parvez, a young man trapped by circumstances and fighting for a lost love. Parvez needs to get rich and real quick so he can reclaim his lover now married to a corrupt cop Chiple. The problem is that he has no clue how!!
Preeti and Vishal live together. She a small time model struggling the good fight and he the typical cocaine snorting big dreaming loser on the invariable inexorable spiral into crime.
Johnny is convinced that his destiny lies in one of the three making good their dream.
In their lives are other complex characters – Chutta, the drug dealer who wants to corporatize the trade and his eunuch sugar momma Begum as well as a mysterious billionaire who is attracted to Preeti.
A provocative, unflinching look at the complexities of urban living, the films puts Johnny right in the middle of Parvez, Vishal and Preeti’s rollercoaster life.
They all are playing a game called life. They all are waiting to ride that one wave. The question is what will happen to Johnny. Are they even bothered?
