Struggling scriptwriter Rajat tells his friend Kamal three stories – about truth - from his childhood. One is of his mother disrobing; the other, of his father’s flirtations with the maid and the third, about his girlfriend’s complex about her ass. In all the three cases, he had told the truth – he liked his mother’s nudity, he loved his father’s looseness, and he admired the maid’s ass more than his girlfriend’s. All he got in return were slaps. Kamal laughs at his tales and leaves. Rajat makes an unusual discovery – he sees people in real life who resemble his fictional characters!
