Add to Watchlist

A dance teacher Ramu Gupta (Jimmi Mistry) is a Delhi resident who arrives in New York to become rich and famous. He has a strong penchant for music and dance. Ramu always dreams of becoming a well known and celebrated dancer one day. He somehow manages to find a job of a dance instructor. He strongly believes that he can succeed to become a legendary dancer only if he re-locates to the USA.

Ramu travels to USA and begins to share a compact tiny apartment with some of his distant relatives in Queens in New York. He discovers that dreams are always far fetched whereas the reality is altogether a different phenomenon. In order to sustain a livelihood he finds a job in an Indian restaurant.

In the meantime the film director Dwain (Michael Mckeen) announces an audition for his upcoming movie. Ramu decides to participate for the role of a “porno” in the movie but eventually he fails to succeed. Sharona (Heather Graham) an adult actress meets with Ramu and charms him with her attractiveness.

One day Ramu’s relatives decide to host a party and Ramu manages to get the chance to welcome the guests. He also gets the chance to perform a few Bollywood numbers in the party as the original performer failed to show up. He makes a profound impression on the guests and especially to Lexi who regards Ramu as a sexy date and a great eastern philosopher. Finally Ramu gains some popularity amongst New York’s upper class and he also appoints an agent, Josh. He fails to sustain his position as people soon find out his original depth of knowledge.

Ramu constantly appoints Sharona for help and slowly intimacy builds up between them. But Sharona is already engaged to a firefighter who is unaware of the fact that she is an adult actress. Complicacies creep in.
