What are some of the common features that make a METRO?
Rising sensex. A smaller world. Short distances due to cell phones. Multiplexes showing 10 movies a day. Closer cities due to low coast airlines. Malls mushrooming at every corner of the city. Too many choices. Too many dreams. Not enough sleep. The seven year itch has come down to 7 months. Or lesser. There's less time for breakfast. Even lesser time for dinner. And no time for lunch.
That's LIFE. That's METRO.
And there are people like Rahul [Sharman Joshi], Neha [Kangna Ranaut], Ranjeet [Kay Kay Menon], Shikha [Shilpa Shetty], Akash [Shiney Ahuja], Shruti [Konkona Sen Sharma] and Debu [Irrfan Khan] who come together in this METRO.
Rahul [Sharman Joshi] and Neha [Kangna] were never in a relationship. But Rahul wanted to turn it around his way. As a young call center executive in a Mumbai based BPO, he wanted everything, which included money...and of course Neha, his boss! On the other hand Neha had plans of her own. She was young, sexy and good looking. Add to that her trait of being a hard worker and she knew she too could get everything that she desired - a high position in the organization and visibility.
So what, if for that she has to get into a sexual relationship with her boss Ranjeet [Kay Kay Menon], a man who was ever willing to give Neha all what she wanted, materialistic or sexual, as long as the question of commitment never arose.
It wasn't as if Ranjeet was alone at him. He had someone like Shikha [Shilpa Shetty] as his wife who was maximum he could have bargained for. She herself was beautiful, sexy and in fact a much better student than him but still for Ranjeet, it was Neha who mattered most. In spite of the fact that he and Shikha also had a 6 year old son. Hence while Shikha stayed at home to take care of their son and household chores, Ranjeet spent most of his time in office to become more successful and be in close proximity with Neha.
Expectedly, Ranjeet and Shikha were not sharing a best of the relationships and it hardly came as a surprise when Shikha and Akash [Shiney Ahuja] got attracted to each other and the attraction soon became love. Ironical though because while Ranjeet was successful all the way, Akash was just the opposite and could easily be labeled as a loser and a rebel without a cause. A struggling theatre artist and a divorcee since his wife rightly believed that success was eluding him for too long, Akash was just not the perfect choice for Shikha, even though she tended to think otherwise!
Between all this, there is also an episode of Amol, a 70 year old man who has returned to India after 40 years just for one single reason - to be with his first love Vaijanti and spend last few years of his life with her! A small world indeed since Vaijanti was Shikha's aunty, her moral support and lived in an old age home.
In this small world, there were many more stories that were interconnected. One such story was that of Shruti [Konkana Sen Sharma] who was Shikha's sister and Neha's room mate. A producer at Radio Mirchi, she was in her 30s and as (ill)luck would have had it, still a virgin! And now she had just one mission left in life - to get hooked on to a guy and get married.
Two guys came in her life soon - RJ Wishy K who worked at the same radio station and Debu [Irrfan Khan]. While she gets into a relationship with Wishy K, her detest for Debu was unprecedented too! An ordinary man whom she met through a matrimonial site, Debu was just not the kind with whom Shruti could have spent her life. Well, at least that was the first impression that she had!
Story moved on and all the characters were destined to interact with each other at some or the other point in their life. Starting<
