New York city.

The central crossroad

of the city.

People have believed

this since long.

Living life a new way.

People from all over the world..

..come here by the means

of plane, ship, train.

They leave behind their family..

..friends and nation.

Their motive is to earn

a lot of money.

Our story is also about

such people..

..in a city where

dreams turn real.

They fight their troubles

with great grit.

And they try to forget their

troubles on Holi.

Holi, a colourful festival

of lndia.

This is Meera, A financial

consultant in Wallstreet.

ln search of harmony, she leaves

behind a successful..

..but stressful life. She's a

yoga teacher by profession.

Life has definitely gifted

her with luxury.

But she hasn't been gifted

with a child yet..

..the biggest happiness

of a woman.

This is Dev, Meera's

charming husband.

The publisher of

a very successful..

..magazine, American home.

He in the pursuit of

making a journal..

..which is away from

profit earning.

Yet, close to his heart.

This unsuccessful newspaper

is named, lndian Voice.

For which, he invested all the

money he had earned till date.

Megan, Meera's, college friend.

She has a God's gift.

She can resolve problems in

others' life by tarot cards.

But cannot resolve

her, own problems.

Hey, sweetheart!

l was going to call you,

in a few moments!

What did they say?

As usual..

They need to conduct some tests

and only then can they infer.

Oh honey! Don't worry about it.

But you need to talk

to Dev about it.

Meg, l don't want to talk about

this, right now, love.

So, we're meeting for lunch

today, aren't we?

Don't be late!

Okay, l'll reach on time.

See you later!

You've spoken to the

printer, right?

How many times have l

answered this. Yes!

And their answer remains the

same. They wouldn't wait!

Dev, Dev!

This makes the money, right?

But this, lndian Voice doesn't.

lt's a simple thing, Dev.

But l can't stop this. Our

community needs a forum and..

..this is the only way. -Yes.

But it's a waste of money.

Dev, look at me.

There's one more thing. l just

got a call from the bank.

They've said that you've got

time to repay the 4$ lakhs..

..by Monday. -l know it!

Dev, they'll stop all this.

They'll put an end to all

this. To all this!

l'm worried about you.

About your magazine, and

trust me, even your..

..newspaper. But what can we do?

See, l'm going to meet

a very big investor.

And l'll find a way out of this.

l've done this, earlier as well.

l just need some time,

nothing more.

Yes, l can give some time.

That's my girl.

Two weeks, not more.

Oh, this will be so nice, lsha.

Yes, tomorrow night.

Yes, tomorrow night.

Yes, you can definitely get

Cooky along with you. Of course!

Hello! Hello!

Yes, sir. Sorry, the phone

got disconnected.

Ofcourse! Well, timing is

very important for this.

Yes, that'll be great. Okay!

Thanks for the card.

ls there room for one

more, in there?

My dress! Be careful, my dress.

This is my favourite dress.

-l'll get a new one..

..for you, queen. -Promise

me first!

l promise you! -Then

l won't need this.

You look better without this.

lt won't be so good in front

of the guests, l guess!

Don't even think of receiving

the call. -Please. -No!

lt's very important. Very

important. -Dev!

Hello. Hey, Jee.

What did they say?

Operators. -What did they say?

Look, lsha, is going to come

to the party tomorrow.

l'll talk it all out then.

l don't believe this!

But l don't think, Jee, that

it'll be of any use.

l hadn't told anybody about

this since years.

Well, look, l'll call

you tomorrow. Okay?

Keep this. You can talk over

the phone, all night.

Baby! -Happy? -Please, please,

give me a chance.

No work related topics at home,

Dev. You know this well.

And yes, by the way, happy

birthday, love!


O heart! lt's difficult

to survive here.

Be careful. Beware. This is

Mumbai -New York, my dear.

Vikraman, Vikraman, Vikraman.

This is Vani, Meera's sister.

Since the time, Vani started

worrying about others.

Since then, God has

taken a long leave.

This is Shekhar, Vani's husband.

He's always troubled

with Vani's nature.

Are you having any problem, son?

What? -l'm asking whether

you're comfortable?

Yes. -You don't want to go to

the bathroom, right? -No!

He'll tell you whenever

he wants to go.

Or do you want to go?

No. -lf you want to, then

let me know now.


You're unnecessarily

pestering him, Vani.

Now, will he piss

on your command?

We even have to arrange

for his food.

Lui, Lui!

What happened? -What's next!?

-You forgot the lines again?

Sorry. -l don't have

so much of time.

C'mon, let's do it again. -Okay,

focus, focus. lt'll be fine.

This is Javed. Meera's

filmmaker friend.

He has been trying to make his

first film, since, 10 yrs now.

Jennifer, a struggling actress,

who loves Javed.

But Javed, still doesn't know

what role she plays in his life.

A girlfriend, an actress or..

Lui, Lui, answer me.

lt was good! -Not feeling

satiated. -lt was good!

What's happening? -There

can be no better takes.

My head's aching.

-Just a minute.

Hello, Larry! What's up, friend?

Yes, l'm fine. Did

you talk to them?

Oh! What a news!

l'll just take 5 minutes. l'll

call you back in twenty minutes.

Okay? -l'm losing the mood.
