In a week-long comic journey, young Ravi sets out to make a Bollywood film with his schoolmates; writes a ransom note; casts a heroine; uses creative ways to engage his friends in his film during the ever-stressful exam season; reveals the darker side of his friends and family; and keeps his mother thinking that all his hard work was towards his final exams. Set in a middle-class India, where the pressure of examinations is the most defining aspect of a parent and child’s life during school years, this movie deftly balances humor with life lessons.
