Storyline

Employed as a Librarian in Lucknow University's Tagore Library, Mithilesh Shukla is a 34-year, vertically challenged (just 5'2") old bachelor, who has an extended family consisting of two sisters and one brother, all married, as well as his widowed mother. His maternal uncle, Advocate Kishorilal Mishra, and his mother persuade him to travel to Bareilly to see a prospective bride, and he does so. He is introduced to statuesque Veena Tiwari, both converse, and find themselves compatible. Shortly, thereafter Veena is introduced to the rest of the Shukla family, the couple get married, and she moves in with Mithilesh. He will soon find people staring at them, as she towers over him, raises the seat of his motorbike, as well as visits a footpath vendor to increase his height. But when everything fails, he starts making excuses not to be seen with her in public. Things only get worse after his employer hires a much taller computer operator, Akash, who is known to Veena, and he suspects both... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Simple Movie with so many messages
15 June 2014 | by vipinkathuria21See all my reviews

This is a movie that one should definitely watch. Everyone of us try to be simple and nice to the people. However as we interact with people, we start making comparison and living in perception. Most of the time we hurt ourselves only by doing this. The movie revolves around this perception and how one believe leads to another. The script and story are simple and close to reality. A Very Good Movie with many messages.
