They say that best friends have the craziest stories.Mithai, a dark comedy, is set in Hyderabad where the city is a part of the narrative. Sai (Rahul Ramakrishna[3]) is a techie in his mid-twenties, but unlike a typical brainy computer geek, he is just hanging on to his job. His only achievement, not losing his job, will be short lived.

He gets fired three days before his wedding and gets drunk with his friend Jani(Priyadrshi Pullikonda), a jobless street-smart, self-contained alcoholic with zero ambition. He reaches his house after the drinking session, leaving his door open by mistake. A robber breaks in and steals a necklace among other possessions, setting off a series of events that has the characters lives and fates criss-crossing across three days.

Accepting a challenge from his NRI friend Krishna (Ravi Varma), who rebukes Sai for being a loser, our two friends take it upon themselves to prove him wrong by nabbing the thief before getting married.

The challenge takes us along on a wild ride, encountering a host of unforgettable characters along the way. From ‘The Dude”, a wise, composed guy, who has life all figured out, and is living a happy, trippy life living with his pet goat Sundari to Deepti (Swetaa Varma), his detective friend. A serious method artist, Deepti can’t get over the role of detective she played once. and has taken a vow that she won't get married until she solves her first case. Will she solve the case, will she find the thief and get married, and will our friend Sai get married? That’s the ride the audiences are taken on, as we follow our friends on their crazy adventure.
