SALAAM VENKY is the story of a man’s right to die. Venkatesh Krishnan aka Venky (Vishal Jethwa) is 24 and is suffering from DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy), a degenerative disease in which the muscles stop working one by one as one ages. In the present day, Venky can no longer… walk and is wheelchair-bound. Her mother Sujata (Kajol) is a single parent and has single-handedly taken care of Venky. He was at home when suddenly, his condition got serious. He’s rushed to the hospital where Dr Shekhar (Rajeev Khandelwal), who has been treating him for years, realizes that Venky’s end is near. Even Venky is aware of it and he asks her mother to fulfil his last wish. He wants to go for euthanasia and then donate his organs to those in need. In case he dies naturally, some of his organs will not be worth donating. He doesn’t want such a situation to arise. Sujata, obviously, disapproves of his plan because as a mother, she can’t agree to this idea. But soon, Sujata finds merit in Venky’s suggestion. She agrees and decides to go to Court, seeking mercy killing for her child. But in India, euthanasia is illegal and it can result in a long, courtroom battle. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
