About the Film

After the untimely death of their only son, Iqbaal, Neurosurgeon, Dr. Tariq Sheikh (Late Farooq Sheikh) and his wife Dr. Saira (Sarika) are unable to put the pieces of their broken life together. In an attempt to make a fresh start in life and to get rid of the ‘nothingness’ that haunts them, they shift to Mumbai from Pune. More than the city’s distractions, it’s their loud neighbor Manubhai (Raghubir Yadav), who manages to kill the deafening silence that plagues them with his somewhat annoying yet adorable antics. Manubhai introduces Tariq to the fun loving members of Club 60 – where life begins at 60.
