Indian director Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox), returns to Mumbai for this charming, bittersweet romance.
Rafi is a struggling street photographer. While dreaming of a better life, he sends most of the money he earns back to his village to pay off the debts of his father.
Under mounting pressure from his grandmother to get married, a chance encounter leads him to Milon, a shy stranger he convinces to pose as his fiancée. She is a dedicated student, heading for university and success, but her sheltered life has left her isolated and longing.
To keep up the façade, Rafi and Milon meet daily and, despite the very different worlds they both hail from, they begin to develop a connection.
