When two NRI siblings return back home to visit their grandfather, they get entangled amidst nostalgia and a bit of household drama. Like every family, this one has its own flaws but their love for each other stands out despite it all.

Also, the golden touch of Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson, adds a vintage vibe to the movie.
All in all, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor create an exciting aura on the big screen and ace mushy Gulzar dialogues. Need we say more?
