The movie is about the Gandhian ideals that have been conveniently forgotten by today’s generation. The film is also a sensitive tale about a demented father and his caring daughter. Uttam Chaudhry (Anupam Kher) is a scholar of Hindi and a retired professor. He has been a man of remarkable integrity and strong principles. Things get complicated after professor Chaudhry starts having bouts of forgetfulness. Besides the occasional lapses of memory, the professor starts becoming absent-minded and delusional. He no longer remembers when his wife passed away. He also forgets that he has retired and goes to lecture in the college. And later, when his daughter’s boyfriend’s family comes to see her with a marriage proposal, professor Chaudhry acts in a demented way. The family goes back disappointed and Trisha’s boyfriend marries another woman of his parent’s choice, fearing that the dementia runs in the Chaudhry family. Meanwhile, the professor’s condition begins to worsen. Flashes from his early memory begin to convince him that he is the man who killed Mahatma Gandhi…
