The title of the film does create interest in the minds of the people of Delhi. The plot revolves around a group of theatre artists, the leader of the group is Moulik, role played by Anuj Saxena. This is all about the struggling artists who want to get a strong foothold in the field of theatre.

The story is about the struggling theatre artist Moulik (Anuj Saxena), who has a group. They do rehearsals in the area of the famous Chandni Chowk which is also famous for the parantha gali. Though Anuj palys the part of a theatre artist, little talent is shown in his performance. He is seen smiling once in a while and lacks expression in his presentation.

The heroine, newcomer Neha Pawar as Naina Kaur  has a loud voice. She does business in making and delivering different  flovoured paranthas to her clients. She lives in the same neighbourhood of the theatre group. The two, Moulik and Neha fall in love after Neha joins the theatre group.

The character of Neha’s Biji, played by Mohinder Gujral is worth watching. She has done justice to her part. She is energetic and lively and much better than the other actors.

The story shows how theatre artists struggle to make a place. The Director of the film Sachin Gupta is a famous theatre director and playwright but has not been fortunate to bring out the story for the appeal of the audience. The music is bearable and photography is good.

The film can be watched and it will not be something to regret about in spending the time to see it.
