SYNOPSIS
An affable Bollywood buff and wanna-be-actor, Sunny, goes to remote areas in Rajasthan with an American crew, to work on a documentary film. One day after pack-up, an Islamic terrorist group kidnaps him. When the group leader finds that the inept terrorist had mistaken their prisoner for the American crew-member, he decides to keep him hostage until they locate their original target.

Sunny finds himself on enemy border amidst guns and pathani-clad guards. The house in which he is confined, belongs to a Pakistani, whose trade stems from pirated Hindi films, which he brings back every time he crosses the border. On this shared wavelength, Sunny wins some brownie points from his stern guards. Soon, the two factions realize that they share a human and cultural bond.
