(Released: Jan 30, 2015)
The film starts off with a 'confession' by Shivkar Talpade aka Shivi (Ayushmann Khurrana) and a narrative by Shastri (Mithun Chakraborty). Shivi is a good-for-nothing, lethargic son of his Govind Talpade (Jayanty Kriplani in a cameo). His claim to fame is that despite being an adult, he is still in school for failing in class for 8 years and is now sitting on the same bench as his nephew Narayan (Naman Jain). Life is absolutely pointless for him... till the time he accidentally 'sees' Sitara (Pallavi Sharda), a tamasha dancer by profession. Ever since the time he sees her, he falls head over heels in love with her, so much so that he even gets thrown out of the house by his father for him wanting to marry a dancer. That's when Shivi lands up meeting the eccentric Shastri (Mithun Chakraborty), whose sole dream is to make a machine that takes (read 'flies') man to the skies. He constantly refers to his book that has the 'secret formula' for the same. The Britishers want to get their hands on this book and stop him from making the plane. But when Shastri sees Shivi and his 'creative mind', he immediately senses immense potential in him and starts grooming him under his care and shelter. In full faith, Shastri reveals to Shivi that his entire life depends upon the book, but since he feared the British, he hands over the same to Shivi, as he is the sole person whom he could trust. When the British get to know about the book, they offer him a whopping 6000 rupees to sell off that book to them, which he firmly refuses. At the same time, there comes a situation when Shivi's ladylove Sitara is neck deep in debts and the sole option to make money is by Shivi selling off the book to the British.
Does Shivi ditch Shastri and his faith by selling that confidential book to the British to save his ladylove, does Shastri become successful in building a plane, does Shivi really live upto the faith that Shastri showed in him... is what forms the rest of the film.
