Chhai (Dugal) and Arvind (Sangal) live together in a shoebox apartment in Mumbai. They struggle to make ends meet, but they’re happy. That is, until Chhai spots an unfinished statue of Lakshmi, the Hindi goddess of prosperity. A painful encounter with a tiny rock later and Chhai has a mark on her face – and a psychological scar that keeps on growing.
“I need my Lakshmi” she cries, oblivious to that fact that she’s clearly obsessed. The price of her obsession? 15,000 rupees. With Arvind still owed 3,000 from his tight-fisted property developer boss, it’s way out of their reach. But that only drives Chhai even further. It is because the statue did something to her? Is it because she can’t have kids? Is it simply because she’s mental?
