The film starring Sarwar Ahuja (Garry) and Madalasa Sharma (Reet) as the lead actors, is the story of Garry, who is born and brought up in Canada and has recurrent dreams of a place unknown to him. The whole plot runs on the lines of how Reet helps him discover that his dreams are actually connected with Patiala. Does his dreams have got to do something with his present or his past?

So while the audience pays for their entertainment, they at the same time contribute for a genuine noble cause,.” said Abhishek Saxena, the director. The movie is a situational comedy and has been shot in about seven to eight locations, like Malaysia, Canada and Patiala, and is interspersed with moments of romance, action and suspense.
