The film is all about a 15-year-old boy Shay, who seems to be struggling with his adolescent years. He is terrorized by a gang of bullies in a high end and posh boarding school. The reason for the repeated bullying? The more popular (and stronger) classmates want Shay to drop his lead role in the school’s production of The Merchant of Venice. The stubborn Shay refuses, and the bullying continues. This ends up adding the chain of events, which leads to the loss of his innocence and life.
In the film, Kunal essays the role of a charismatic drama teacher in a prestigious boarding school. He uses unique and unconventional ways of teaching theatre to his students.
The story of the film is a thrilling, coming-of-age drama which tackles the uncomfortable topic of bullying that is rampant in educational institutes.
The film will also stars Soni Razdan, Ali Haji, Mohammad Ali Mir, Muskaan Jaferi and Shaan Grover.
Helmed by Vandana Kataria, the movie is bankrolled by Yoodlee Films and will hit cinema screens on June 28.
