Buddha in a Traffic Jam is a political thriller about Vikram, a happy-go-lucky management student from a top Business School of India who becomes an overnight sensation after a successful internet campaign against the radical fundamentalism of moral policing in India. This prompts his university teacher, Professor Ranjan Batki, to throw him a challenge for yet another internet campaign. A campaign that would help raise money via a non-profit Pottery Club for the poor people living in Maoists areas of India.
Little did Vikram know that he was about to become a part of a plot that would put his life and the nation at risk. He gets entangled between two corrupt facets - Socialism and Capitalism, both of which are deeply rooted in India.
