Synopsis :

30-something Nissim belongs to a typical middle-class Maharashtrian family. From the outside, Nissim's life looks quite sorted and uneventful. But all that is about to change. Professionally, he is a sous chef at a 5-star hotel and has recently been offered the opportunity to move to Paris as an executive chef. Nissim hasn't quite figured out how he feels about this. On the personal front, loneliness seems to have become an intrinsic part of his life, not due to lack of prospects, but an unwillingness to go for it. He is surrounded by relationships of all shapes and colours and each one looks like more work than play. The over-analyses of couples around him dissuade Nissim from taking the plunge with either Prajakta or Gowri, 2 potent choices he has. One is his colleague, the other his boss. Both radically different from each other. Mutual attraction with one and friendship with the other, Nissim shares a unique individual equation with them both. But this failure to take it to the next level with either, affects them all.
