Ajatashatru Lavash Patel has lived all his life in a small Mumbai neighborhood tricking people with street magic and fakir stunts. He sets out on a journey to find his estranged father, but instead gets dragged on a never-ending adventure.
-In a neighborhood of Mumbai resides a colony of magicians, puppeteers, fire-eaters and other artistes. Among them is Aja, who as a child, possesses an exceptional talent. He is a 'fakir', who can float, swallow sabers and he is equipped with an array of tricks, which he mastered to perfection. He also performed miraculous healings. But when his mother gives him a plane ticket to Paris and instructs him to carry out a mysterious job, he is completely upset as he has never left his little neighborhood before.Written by

This is the sort of movie that they don't make anymore, the kind you remember as a child, where everyone is bigger and grander than in real life, where magic can take place, where romance can sweep the globe, and love conquers all. I haven't enjoyed a film so much in years.
