    Two brothers, Shanu and Bua, aged 9 and 7 respectively, live in a chawl in Mumbai with their mother Vaishnavi. In need of money, Vaishnavi asks Bali Bhai, her kind brother-in- law who lives in the same chawl, to get Shanu and Bua a job with him. Bali Bhai, a spot boy in the film industry, takes the boys to his film set where they see the film's hero playing badminton. The kids don't get the job but they do get the shuttlecock and from there set out on a mission to build their own badminton court, buy racquets and play themselves. But sometimes it is the most ordinary, which is the hardest to accomplish.
