Just imagine how would you feel if packets containing 500 and 1000 rupee notes suddenly end up in your kitchen (remember pre-demonetization)? You’ll be on top of the world!

But what if Govt. decides to introduce a system where having black money is unethical and you have to give in all the money to a humble bank? Yes, that’s what goes through her mind.

As far as Demonetization received mixed reactions from beloved countrymen, the movie tries to depict that through a family.


Sarita Pillai (Saiyami Kher) is a blank clerk doing her work very efficiently while her husband Sushant (Roshan Mathew) is perhaps just a sit at the home person with no consistent income vis a vis a job.

As the desperate, baffled bank clerk she finds an unexpected reserve of money streaming out of her kitchen sink each 12 PM. Her deteriorated life finds another bearing to stream into. After quite a while after night, she receives the benefits of the marvel, as her slacker spouse, Sushant turns out to be progressively dubious of her wealth.

What happens when she hits an unexpected big stake? Will she discover an associate in her better half and have the option to procure the delights of this unending income?

In such a situation, you accept the most exceedingly awful in everybody. After the discussion, we concurred that the two movies have an uncanny similarity most definitely.”
