The film is the story of a regular bank cashier who finds her fortune changing when she accidentally keeps getting notes from the choked drainage in her kitchen. As revealed in the trailer, the cashier and her husband are living a normal life at what seems like a chawl in Mumbai. However, the woman’s aspirations are big and when she gets an opportunity to fulfil those, she wants to cash in on that opportunity, while her husband appears unaware of her financial discoveries.

The director’s other projects that are being streamed on Netflix are Dev.D and Bombay Talkies.
Earlier, while talking to news agency IANS about venturing into OTT platforms after working in Bollywood films like Mirzya and Rey, Saiyami said, “OTT is the future. Many big actors are coming onto it, big filmmakers are making projects for the platforms and they have really well written female characters. That doesn’t happen in films where girls don’t have a lot to do, but in OTT projects girls are driving them. It’s an added advantage. There’s no box office pressure. The shelf life of female actors has increased thanks to OTT platforms.”
