This Diwali, catch the family movie which is not your typical family affair. Starring the ever versatile Ayushmann Khurrana as the hero, the movie tells the story of 25-year-old who has a happily typical life, with a happily typical relationship, in a happily typical conservative society, whose life is turned upside down when his middle aged mother announces that she is pregnant!
