This film is written and directed by Ram Kamal Mukherjee and produced by Aritra Das, Shailendra Kumar and Dinesh Gupta under the banner of Assorted Motion Pictures and SS1 Entertainments.
The film discusses the taboo surrounding divorce and working women. Esha Deol stars as a young divorced chef who is going through money troubles and is trying to stay on top of everything, be it her job or mounting credit card payments.
The story takes place in a fancy hotel where Esha is a cookery contest winner. But the film opens with her trying to balance her chaotic life with money troubles plaguing her on one hand, and having to deal with sniggering co-workers, on the other. However that very day, Esha is asked to bake a very fancy cake for a prominent guest who is coming to town. The story takes a turn when the guest finally arrives and gets to taste Chef Shilpa’s cake. And that gives her the much-needed closure, financially and emotionally.
