RK is  frustrated filmmaker who can't get his latest feature to click. It's a tribute to 1960's cinema, complete with a gangsters, an earnest hero over his head, and a love interest with style and glossy tresses. But the project is lifeless and things get even worse when the lead character runs out of the edit and into real life.

Rajat Kapoor plays the burnt-out director and the wayward character who escapes the film in this surreal & witty comedy.

"delightfully clever and deliciously bizarre" 

- POV Magazine

"highly innovative and well-crafted "
