A story of three friends; Khaldi, Taambi and Chitta, who come from the middle-lower class of the society and are striving to flee or rather “skip” to Europe. To accomplish this they find out possible ways to fulfill their dreams and make their families proud of them. The film holds immense attraction within due to the Legendary Actor Naseeruddin Shah starring in it. The way a figure narrates a story and makes everyone understands his intentions is well-performed by Naseeruddin who speaks Punjabi throughout the movie.
