The movie is based on the life story of a doting young man Duke Chawla. He has all that one could ever want, a successful medical career, a doting girlfriend and dreams that are coming true. Until one night changes it all. A fatal car crash leaves him neck down paralysed and puts an end to his perfect life. He loses all that he had including his girlfriend, his house and his career. A man who was once an epitome of hope finds no reason to live. He sees death as a better option than to live like a vegetable.

Next on the cards is Omar’s takes on ‘Baabarr’ directed by Ashu Trikh stars Soham Deepak, Mithun Chakraborty and Urvashi Sharma. The film, set in Lucknow, depicts the effect of illiteracy on today‘s youth, their outlook and aspirations. The film throws light on the growing ambitions of the youth and how their focus shifts to organized crime with an underlying message that crime never dies, it just changes faces.
