The film is all about an aspiring writer, Purushottam (Vinay Pathak) and his overbearing wife Nikki (Mugdha Godse).

Nikki wants her husband to be successful and nags him all the time, which leads to constant fights between the two.
In all of this, we have Nikki’s brother, Saurabh Shukla, who too is no less than his sister. Frustrated by this routine, Purushottam walks out of his house and accidentally lands up in a bar, meets a prostitute Rubina (Raima Sen) and his life changes overnight.
Rubina rewrites Ek Thehri Si Zindagi incorporating a lot of interesting facts thus making it more appealing to the masses. She even gets the novel published, which is now titled Ek Tharki Si Zindagi.

For me, Kaagaz Ke Fools was a baby that was abandoned just after it was born.
Sad but true!!
Kaagaz Ke Fools is a film that touches upon a lot of facts that most of us experienced in a very tongue and cheek manner. The film is all about an ...2.5
