The story is set against the backdrop of Mumbai. A tough city to survive in, even when you have everything handed to you. So you get tough or you get going. Or in some cases, you have to make it the hard way. Sonali does just that. With charisma and a sweet smile, she makes her way into homes and hearts, all the while delivering an essential service. These days, other than roti, kapda and makaan, we need broadband. This is the crux of the matter. How much are you willing to go through to be connected to the world? Corporations no longer look at customers as people, but rather as numbers and profits. This is adequately conveyed by Anupam Kher’s character. All power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thrown into this is Ali Fazal’s character. A boy whose dream is to make a difference, he has to face his mother and her ambitions. In the middle of both of these characters is Sonali, the girl who will make a man out of a boy and a woman who will fight for what is hers. Facing insurmountable odds, deceitful political nexus, double-dealing businessmen and crooks, Sonali has to take a stand. She has to adapt and strike for all those little people, the ones crushed by these big industries.
