INDIA LOCKDOWN is the story of six characters during the Covid crisis. In March 2020, the cases of Covid-19 begin to increase across the world, including in India. On March 24, the Government of India announces a nationwide lockdown for three weeks. Nageshwar Rao (Prakash Belawadi) stays alone in a… highrise in Mumbai along with his pet dog, Bruno. He is all set to fly to Hyderabad to be with his pregnant daughter, Swati (Hrishitaa Bhatt). Due to the lockdown, his plans go kaput as all flights are suspended. He gets paranoid when his neighbour tests positive for Covid-19 and is hospitalized. Days before the lockdown imposition, Nageshwar had asked his maid Phoolmati (Sai Tamhankar) to stop coming to his house since the society had barred entry of servants. He gives her two months’ salary in advance, though. But it’s not enough for her and her husband Madhav Prakash (Prateik Babbar), who runs a chaat stall. During the lockdown, their financial situation deteriorates. Madhav learns that some people from his slum, who are also from Bihar, are all set to go back to their hometowns on foot. Madhav decides to join them along with Phoolmati and his two children. Mehrunissa (Shweta Basu Prasad) is a prostitute in a red-light area in Mumbai. Since Covid spreads through contact, her work suffers. On the advice of her pimp Tipu (Saanand Verma), she decides to go for phone sex and charge customers for it. Things, however, soon take a sour turn for her. Lastly, Dev (Satvik Bhatia), a student, has shifted to his uncle’s place after his uncle went to Himachal. He and his girlfriend Palak (Zarin Shihab) plan to lose their virginity on March 25 in the former’s house. Their plans also get cancelled due to the lockdown imposition. Palak’s father, meanwhile, is very strict and doesn’t allow her to leave the house at all. Dev strikes up a friendship with his neighbour, Moon Alves (Aahana Kumra), a pilot, who gets attracted to him. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
