It had Rishi Saxena and Vibha Anand in the lead. This entire film had been shot in a day inclusive of a song at one location which is record in itself. The story revolves around a boyfriend who is eagerly waiting for his lady love who is thinking of committing many leisurely acts. In the bargain he gobbles some medicines to give him the strength and stamina. Instead of his girl friend a female insurance agent lands up at his house.

On quizzing about releasing this film in theaters, to which Sammir adds, “The film has been made for digital release platforms. These days it is difficult to release a small film. To get the proper chain of all India distributor network is quiet difficult. Good films do not get appropriate cinemas,show timings and that breaks it at the box office window collections. I strongly believe that our producers’ and distributors’ associations should sit down together and resolve these issues. Today small producers are confounded but the producers, its association and the government is turning a blind eye to their problems. ”
