In this movie, the five old men (Raghubir Yadav, Satish Shah, Tinnu Anand, Sharat Saxena, Vineet Kumar), who are aged between 60-69, feel sexy like 16-year-old. These sexagenarians claim themselves as proud and sexy senior citizens. According to them, they are not old, God-fearing and not at all boring people.
A protagonist Dr Tariq Sheikh played by Farooque Sheikh, a non-practicing neurosurgeon from Pune, who has just moved to Mumbai. Tariq and his younger wife Dr Saira, played by Sarika, are fighting to accept the death of their only son in USA in an accident.
Saira is very strong woman and somehow, able to find the power to face life by joining a hospital in Mumbai. Tariq’s minor tension threatens to ruin him as well as his married life, which is on the verge of losing its spark.
Manu Bhai Shah, who is 12th floor neighbour of Sheikh, enters in Sheikh’s house to enjoy aloo parathas. Manu Bhai, with his extremely unpleasant outfit and loud talk is the exact opposite of everything that the Sheikh’s represent. Dr Tariq calls “this impudent, imposing joker” and brings about a sudden change in their life that even Dr Tariq’s shrink (Harsh Chhaya) cannot.
In this movie, how Manu Bhai introduces Dr Tariq to the five sexagenarians for the formation of Club 60 is depicted. After the second half, the narrative unfolds to uncover the stories and the lives of all the five. Sexagenarians have fun, gleeful and peppered-with-bawdy jokes. Movie gives message that life is worth living in the worst of unpleasant situations.
