250 ft deep lies the secret of Blue. Treasure hunters come in droves, lured by tales of a fabled treasure. But none but one has ever returned from the deadly depths of the Pacific Ocean; leaving behind a bloody trail and even more intriguing rumoursâ€¦ For not only is the treasure inaccessible; itâ€™s guarded night and day by deadly sharks.
Aarav, Sagar and Sam â€“ three men with differing motives - find themselves diving deep into these murky depths - to hunt for the treasure.For wealthy Aarav, itâ€™s about the intoxicating high of more money and more risk. For honest Sagar, itâ€™s only about saving his girlfriend Mona and his brother. For dare devil Sam, itâ€™s simply a matter of life and death â€“ his own. As emotions run high and motives run deep, the dark side of human nature lays bared. And hundreds of feet underwater, Aarav, Sagar and Sam grapple, initially with sharks, and then with the demons of greed, betrayal and above all, their own pricking consciousâ€¦
Wake Up Sid (Hindi)
This is the story of Sidharth Mehra (Ranbir Kapoor), a lazy, unmotivated slacker from Mumbai whose life undergoes a series of changes after taking his final year college exams. Sidâ€™s world is breezy, carefree, and without any true responsibilities. The most important elements in his life are his friends, his camera, his car, and his X-box 360.
Sid thrives around his two best friends, Rishi (Namit Das) and Laxmi (Shikha Talsania), very rarely communicates with his mother Sarita (Supriya Pathak) and takes his father Ram Mehra (Anupam Kher), and all his hard earned wealth for granted. Despite all these traits, Sid is an honest boy; sweet, funny, and above all, a good friend. Aisha Bannerjee (Konkona Sen Sharma), an aspiring writer from Calcutta, learns this soon enough when her path crosses with Sidâ€™s on her first day in Mumbai. Ambitious, well-read, and driven, Aisha has come to Bombay to realize her dreams as a writer. Despite their contrasting personalities, Sid becomes Aishaâ€™s first friend in the city.
As Aisha sets up her life in Bombay, with the help of Sid and his gang, Sid allows for time to fly by over long drives, parties that stretch well into dawn, and endless hours doing absolutely nothing. But summers vary rarely dull these days and Sidâ€™s summer is no different. A series of circumstances and events compel him to take stock of his life and take a hard look at himself. Will he, at some point figure out what heâ€™s supposed to be doing with his life? Wake up Sid!

Love Aaj Kal (Hindi)
Love Aaj London, San Francisco, Delhi - 2009. Jai and Meera is a modern-day couple in London. They are very happy together but do not believe in tying each other down. So when life pulls them in different directions, they decide to go with the flow. â€œThese Heer-Ranjha, Romeo-Juliet type janam janam ka saath type couples exist only in story booksâ€, Jai says. In the real life, we have to be practical.
Love Kal Delhi, Calcutta - 1965. Veer Singh is struck by the thunderbolt when he sees Harleen for the first time. Soon after, he stands under a tree and swears that â€œis janam mein aur har janam meinâ€¦ yehi meri votti banegi â€“ Harleen Kaur.â€ He travels a thousand kilometers by train to stand under her balcony only to have a glimpse of her face. And yet not speak a word with her.
Love Aaj Kal: Veer does not understand how Jai can treat matters of the heart without passion, like a financial transaction. Jai does not understand how Veer Singh could have been so naÃ¯ve and silly about Harleen in the days of his youth. But as both stories unfold, we realize that the process of relationship might be different in different eras, but the experience of being in love remains the same. So there is the frolic and despair of modern living. The liberation and confusion. And there is the past â€“ the times of innocence and compulsion. And there is distance, and the fondness that increases with distance. Gaps widen between two people, but bridges keep growing too.
