Jaikishan Patel belongs to a traditional Gujarati family but follows his passion; stepping into the glamorous; jet-setting world of investment and private banking. Jai is soon transformed into Dubai-based ‘Jack’ Patel; a hugely successful financial advisor in an American brokerage house. His life seems like a dream come true. He cracks a whopping million-dollar revenue target; receives an indecent proposal from a client’s wife and even manages to keep up with the latest Bollywood item numbers to impress the girl who is tugging at his heart. But just when life seems perfect; recession hits the world economy. And right before Jack’s eyes his world begins to fall apart . . . Will he lose the love of his life too? Or will things look up in the end?
