This film is a tribute to all those who view failures as an opportunity to #RESTART and features a high-octane anthem called ‘Restart’ composed by Shantanu Moitra.

Under Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s direction, it becomes a compelling cinematic journey celebrating the spirit of youth and triumph over adversity.”
