One on One – 2, a sequel to One on One, showcases a new set of nine riveting stories.

GAME, SET(ING) AND MATCH – An American Desi boy is invited to India to meet a prospective bride, but the investment climate looks much more interesting

NOBODY – Vishal Modi. No Body. Just some powder in an urn. An entry in a ledger. A cancelled name on a list. An inconsequential statistic

MAJNU – A couple of Indian soldiers at a border outpost build a relationship over a series of conversations, all directly or indirectly asking one question – “What is war?”
