Niranjan and Nandini Khanna are very wealthy and live a luxurious life. They have an only son, Rahul Khanna, who has nothing but time on his hands and is bent upon getting into mischief and trouble with the law by racing in his sports car with his close buddies. Usually, he finds his way out by bribing traffic cops. Rahul's luck runs out one time when he wrecks several vehicles while speeding. This time the offense is too serious and he is arrested. DCP Bhosle wants Rahul to do time, but reporter Neha Sengupta wants a unique punishment for Rahul: to do community service in an home for senior citizens. Judge K.R.P. Murthy likes the idea of this unique sentence, and sentences an unrepenting Rahul to a senior citizen's home out in the country. Nandini would prefer that Rahul do the time, and has no reservations of him serving this sentence. Sparks fly when Rahul is introduced to the residents of the senior citizens' home. He refuses to assist anyone, until Prajapati, one of the residents... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A surprisingly good movie!!
3 November 2018 | by pankajrohajSee all my reviews

I only watched thisovie because I had read one of it's review in the IMBD and I had nothing else to do so I thought what not take a chance. Worst scenario I will just stop it after watching a few. Minutes and jump onto something else.

But man did that review was true!! It's a different movie with a solid story and solid performances especially but late Mr. Amish Puri.

It's not best of the best but certainly a breath of fresh air and a one time watch for sure.
