Set in the seemingly desultory environs of suburban Mumbai, a charlatan holy man sits at Raju's tea stall. He spends his days drinking cheap country liquor and hoodwinking the eager, if not innocent, workers and housewives who come to him seeking advice. The neighbourhood he counsels is tied together in a complex web of sexual betrayal, unfulfilled desire and blind faith in the holy man's healing powers. One day, however, the holy man begins losing his eyesight. The doctors inform him the problem is due to his alcoholism, but he knows better. For his imminent blindness brings with it a new "vision" - cataclysmic nightmares, hallucinations and, ultimately, the truth. Blessed by a newfound God-given gift, the holy man decides to speak sooth to those who come his way. But are ordinary mortals willing to confront the truth?
