Hou de jarasa ushir (Let There Be A Little Delay) is the story of three people - Sunayna, Malhar, and Shantanu - who work in the same software company. Each one of them is fighting a lonely battle trying to balance work and life. Every morning, they travel to work together in Shabbir's cab. One day, a very crucial day in their career, Shabbir does not arrive on time, and when he does, their cab is stuck in a major traffic jam on the highway. The already irate and anxious passengers decide to let Shabbir try an alternate route to the IT Park that will take them through remote villages. But almost as soon as they break from routine and start on this journey, a series of life-altering incidents (and a fakir who challenges them to take time in their own hands), inspires them to change their perspective of life itself.
