Johnny, a musician, belongs to the itinerant troupe of Hameed the ventriloquist. The star attraction of their show is the talking doll Urshavi - seductress, eternal child-woman, one who cannot age or die. When Hameed's voice fails, he sells Urshavi to Johnny, who returns to his small neighbourhood in suburban Mumbai.
