Synopsis: If Beethoven were alive today- he'd be a DJ and this would be his story!
Raunak, a 26 year old from a small town in India comes to the maximum city, Mumbai, carrying just three things - a guitar, a pair of headphones and a dream.
Raunak is the son of a musician; His father's dream was cut short by an untimely death. With the help of his late father's friend, Surinder, he lands a job at 'Tango Charlie' and proceeds to make it the city's most rocking night club.
There are DJs who play music, and there are DJs who play the crowds. Raunak is both. Charlie, the owner of the club becomes his patron and fan. He creates opportunities for concerts and introduces Raunak to Film makers looking for talent composers.
Saturday nights now have a whole new meaning for Raunak. His world is now one big drink-all-you-can-party-till-you-drop-binge. The edgy youngster is living his dream- a flashy lifestyle, a hot girlfriend (Shonali) a bunch of friends as close as family, and a promising career as a music composer. It is really - HIS MIX.
And when celebrated film maker Anurag Kashyap gives him the break to compose music in his forthcoming film, Raunak's career is about to go into another orbit.
But life has other cards to hand him, and it does deal him an unplayable hand. He is diagnosed with a career threatening ailment, and his dreams are shattered. The ailment slowly, but surely leads him to become tone deaf.
For a musician, hearing is everything. He wants nothing but his music, and deserves everything but his silence. He ends up going into a very dark and lonely place.
In this depressed state and battling internal demons he meets his anti thesis Gauri - a beautiful, free spirited, bohemian girl full of joie de vivre. She is deaf and mute herself, but causes Raunak to look beyond his woes and find the good little things in life. He learns to communicate again, and the light at the end of the dark tunnel slowly comes closer.
But there is still no music in his life. Or is there...
How can a deaf man make music? How does Raunak find a solution to his hurdles? Can he use his other senses to make music? Can he complete his emotional journey by reaching out to his roots and digging deep into his soul? And will he be able to hear the crowds chanting his name as he gets on stage to perform his tribute concert?
