Plot Summary
Ravi and Padmini share a strained relationship due to their teenage
son Buddhi's intellectual handicap. Buddhi, a mildly autistic slow
learner displays his flair for art but his parents, with their middleclass insecurities, neither recognize nor encourage his talent.
Driven by Padmini's social insecurities and Ravi's guilt for dropping
Buddhi as a baby, the parents chase an unreal dream of seeing
their son as a normal good student who, like others, must become
an engineer or a doctor. While Dr Sen, the neurologist, tries hard to
make Padmini accept the reality, Ravi's accidental meeting with Dr
Sathya - the maverick scientist, leads him to the experimental
"Brain Booster" that can make Buddhi a genius. The magic drug has
a side effect - Amnesia, which Ravi thinks is a blessing since Buddhi
has no good memories to talk about. Initially, Ravi hesitates to
administer the drug but one night, in an inebriated state, he is
sufficiently provoked by Padmini to inject Buddhi with the Brain

The immediate effect seems like the end of their

son's life but he eventually recovers from the
shock to emerge as a newly born Buddhi - smarter,
brighter but very confused and aloof. While the
parents celebrate their new life, they overlook the
consequences of a child who has no emotional
bond with his parents. As Buddhi begins to show
signs of being a genius, news breaks out about Dr
Sathya's dark past and the ill effects of his magic
Brain Booster. Soon the parents then begin to
realize the perils of transforming their son to
someone that he was not meant to be.

The film begins with Ravi (Khan) and
Padmini (Shobhana) living as a happily
married couple with a baby boy named
Buddhi Raj (Dhruv Piyush Panjnani),who has
a mental disorder.Padmini blames Ravi for
the child's condition because she believes
he dropped him when Buddhi was a young
child. While Buddhi is good at drawing, his
mother wants him to be good at
mathematics since she was a gold medalist
during her college days. Feeling helpless
she starts taking Buddhi to temples,

During the same period Ravi meets a

Research Scientist Dr Satya (Anupam Kher)
who has recently discovered a brain booster
drug and begins treating Buddhi with this
medicine. As time goes by Buddhi's brain
power improves and he becomes a very
good mathematician. However Buddhi starts
experiencing side-effects and he starts to
forget his own parents during the process
that creates a fresh trouble for them though
his parents feel this a blessing for them.
Buddhi receives media fame and becomes

Now Buddhi starts to misbehave with his parents

which they had never experienced. Buddhi's
parents learns that the drug effects led to form
himanother personality"Aryabhatt". They are
searching Dr. Sathya for the antidote. Meanwhile
they find him in a mental asylum. Buddhi's
parents pleads him for antidote which Sathya
gives them finally. Now as Buddhi starts to attack
his father, his mom knocks him out and injects
with antidote. Now Buddhi is normal and Ravi &
Padmini accepts his talent and film ends on a
happy note

As per my opinion I would like to give
4 stars out of 5. The movie was very
inspirational. It teach us that if a
mentally-challenged person can be
an artist that it is not necessary that
it should be normal.
