Bahut Hua Samman is a satirical comedy, set in the backdrop of Varanasi in UP. The story centres on two engineering students and how they get caught up in a scheme to rob a bank.
Dancer-turned-actor Raghav Juyal and Abhishek Chauhan play the two engineering students who haven’t been able to get a job. The duo is picked up by a conman, played by Sanjay Mishra, to carry out a bank robbery for him, from a plan chalked out by Mishra’s character himself.
A kickass female police officer, played by Nidhi Singh, gets on their trail, as does a mysterious character, played by actor Ram Kapoor. Do the two, and their mentor, succeed in robbing the bank? And more importantly, do they get away with their crime?
The movie is a slice of life film, filled with humour, suspense and action. It also points a mirror at society’s ills, and how, despite graduating with engineering degrees, the youth of today don’t have good jobs to fall back upon.
