VK, an aspiring actor has come to Mumbai, like thousands of others…hoping to make it big. He dreams Shakespeare but his reality is more of cartoon fare. The world deems him to be a "loser", "unlucky" is more his take on the situation. And then, one day, fate smiles on him…well, almost. He gets a break, it's the role of a lifetime and it's packed with action and drama! VK finds himself unknowingly drawn into a whirlpool of events and ends up as a pawn in an underworld plot. Money, conspiracy, deceit, betrayal, lies...it's the stuff the Mumbai underworld is made of. And VK is about to reluctantly taste all of it…and perhaps a little more. Mithya is a story about destiny and its uniquely ironical ways…humour, drama, romance, suspense…this edgy comic-thriller promises all of it.
