Description

Railway Raju is a disarmingly corrupt tour guide with a sketchy past. After a series of misadventures, he is released from jail and makes his way back into the world. When he seeks refuge in an abandoned temple, he is mistaken for a holy man – a part he plays so well that God himself intervenes to put Raju’s new-found sanctity to the test.
