Ghoomketu is the story of an aspiring writer from a UP village called Mahona. He has run away to Mumbai, to try his luck in films and gives himself 30 days to try and prove his worth as a Bollywood writer. Apart from UP, he is also carrying a special guide, called “How to be a Bollywood writer in 30 days” with him. (Meanwhile, his family uses their political connections to pressure the police to bring him back) Badlani, a lazy corrupt officer is assigned the case to find him in 30 days or be sent on a punishment posting. Will Ghoomketu be accepted in Bollywood or will he return? Or Will Badlani be able to find him and save his posting? Nawazuddin plays Ghoomketu in an out and out comedy role and Anurag Kashyap plays Badlani, the corrupt cop.
