As per Mr Bhattacharya the movie has satire as well as soothing story which will attract film lovers from all walks of life. The movie is a fantasy driven tale of 2 men a poet and a painter claiming that they have possessed of an idea which turns out to be same. The idea has been personified as a young lady. Both the men try to claim the idea as theirs through their art form but were not able to settle the claim. Thus they went to ‘fate’ personified as a big fat man a man of authority. But they realise that they can not rely on fate to decide for them. Thus they decide to settle the matter in peace.
