Synopsis   |   Director's Note   |   Producer's Note

Debashish–Debu Chatterjee is 32, employed in an advertising agency, is upwardly mobile but is beset with a strange problem.

He is still a virgin.

Debu’s state of virginal bliss has assumed serious proportions and is threatening to take over Debu’s very functioning. He needs to find a cure to his problem. Fast.

Hope comes in the form a gentleman who calls himself ‘Baba Hindustani’. The Baba promises to cure Debu’s sexual problems. An ecstatic Debu pays a visit to Hotel Piccadilly where the Baba operates. At the hotel, Debu meets Nitin Kapoor, a small time filmmaker. An affable sort of fellow, Kapoor and Debu get along instantly. The Baba on his part is quite a colorful character. He gives Debu a bottle of strange colored pills, telling him his problem will be over in a week’s time.

A week lapses but Debu’s virginity remains unchanged. Things come to a head when Debu gets conned by Kapoor and the Baba. Kapoor, who is weathering a storm in his career, unwillingly asks the Baba to bail him out of his crisis. On the Baba’s advice, Kapoor films Debu doing some physical exercises and then uses the same visuals in his film as a man performing sexual intercourse. Debu of course is oblivious to all this.

Debu, on his part, has come to terms with his fate and his virginity. Just at this point, Kapoor’s film releases and becomes a huge success. Ironically, Debu, still a virgin, now becomes a ‘Sex Star’.

It is at this point that Sonali Verma, a journalist comes into Debu’s life. She wants to interview him and though Debu refuses, she bails him out of jail when he is arrested. She even puts him up in her house when he gets thrown out of his own.

Does Debu find a soul mate in Sonali? Does he forgive Kapoor and the Baba? And most importantly, does Debu finally manage to lose his virginity?
