Vicky and Sonu are siblings and business partners. Between the two of them they run a “C” grade film production company, the lowest on the Bollywood scale. Their works go from horror to crude eroticism. Everything changes when, returning from a trip, Sonu stumbles upon a vulnerable girl. Her wish is to become an actress and he is willing to help her, but Vicky isn’t so sure about it. An intense tribute to Indian off Bollywood cinema, Miss Lovely evokes popular genre cinema and, at the same time, penetrates deeply into the darkness of family drama, in what is the big leap into fiction of one of the most promising directors in Hindu filmmaking.
