This movie is based on a true story which display the struggle of a man (originally: Dashrath Manjhi) who spends 22 precious years of his life to carve a path through the mountain using a single hammer.

The first half of the movie celebrates the fun and free spirited relationship between Nawazuddin and Radhika as a married couple who are in immense love. Initially the movie gives an overview of countryside living with funny interesting dialogues but further takes an intense turn in the second half where Nawazuddin looses his wife and becomes the ‘Mountain man’ spending a major part of his life to carve a road through the mountain for the benefit of the locals. The movie revolves around the idea of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s dedication to carve that path by hook or by crook. The movie shows high level of dedication a human being can have and his desire to work hard until he achieves his goal.
