Raghu Romeo

Loading...
Raghu Romeo is a guileless lower middle class 30 years old man waiter henpecked by mom at home and by the boss who seldom pays him at a girly club. In his naivete, Raghu thinks he must protect the virtue of that joint's floozies from grabby clients, especially Sweety, a hitman's honey whose cynical surface masks a soft spot for the clueless hero. But he only has eyes for Neeta, a quintessential TV-soap suffering-heroine played by not-so-nice Reshma. Not able to distinguish between reel and real life, Raghu kidnaps the terrified actress when it turns out she's on the hit-list (for failing to pay off the entertainment industry's mob "protectors"), bringing her to the countryside house of Sweety.
