the story

Balvinder aka Bubbles Siddhu, a 50 year-old, well-paid financial executive, is on the brink of a breakdown. The situation takes a turn for the worse when his company, where he has worked all his life, goes through rough times and he gets fired. His life begins to spiral downwards, when his apartment is burgled and the robbers take not only all his clothes, but his precious BLACK LABEL as well. He becomes a middle-aged corporate man man on the prowl with crazy plans and paranoia. Behroze, his loving supporting Parsi wife, who quit her job years ago to raise their two daughters, is forced to go back to work. Bubble’s rich farm-owning brother, Sunny Sandhu and his sisters, Pammi and Shammi are brought in to help save their brother’s financial crisis and ill health with hilarious consequences. So Bubbles does the only thing left for him to do - he has a nervous breakdown and it's the best thing that ever happened to him!

Watch as this average middle class couple struggle to survive in our mad city. The Siddhus of Upper Juhu deals with economic meltdown, urban angst, the madness of a consumer society in which people feel they can't live without a musical whisky-pourer and a city that is itself on the brink of a nervous collapse. But not without rib-tickling laughter and insight!
