  • Barah Aana is a comedy of real life, set in today's Mumbai. The story revolves around three unlikely friends: a driver (Shukla), a watchman (Yadav), and a waiter (Aman). The driver is an older man, stoic but dependable. The watchman, in his 30s, is a pushover at work but otherwise mischievous. The waiter is a young, swaggering chap, brimming with ambition. Living together, their differing attitudes spark playful banter. At some point, misfortune befalls the watchman and, due to a series of chance events, he stumbles into a crime. Striking upon a seemingly low-risk way to make good money, and discovering a new sense of self-confidence, he tries to entice the others to join him in a series of such crimes. Cat and mouse games ensue between the three as personalities change, but events soon spiral out of control, leading them in a direction none of them had wanted to take... Featuring a talented ensemble cast, Barah Aana is based on an original script. The running time is 97 minutes.

  • Mumbai-based Kedar Shukla is employed as a chauffeur with Anoop and Simone Mehta, and silently absorbs abuse heaped on him by the latter. He lives an impoverished lifestyle in a small room along with Yadav - a watchman; and Aman - a waiter. While Yadav has family in a village, and sends money regularly, he must come up with more as his son is ill. Aman is friendly with a Caucasian-Italian woman, Kate, and would like to marry her but she tells him that she desperately needs Rs.20,000/-. Kedar lends some money to Yadav but a pickpocket steals the money, leaving the latter depressed. In this state of mind, a male picks on him, Yadav knocks him down, and takes him home much to the chagrin of Kedar and Aman. Yadav offers to get rid of the male via Kedar's car but secretly negotiates a ransom deal with the male's family, and after obtaining the monies, shares it with his room-mates which they refuse to accept. They subsequently relent and decide to partner with Yadav by abducting middle-classed men, demanding a small ransom, and thus improving their lifestyle. Things do start to improve, Yadav gains confidence, while Aman saves enough money to lend to Kate - but the silent and brooding Kedar has secret plans of his own - plans that will shatter and change their lives forever.
