A modern day Robin Hood’s conscience comes to life (literally) and demands him/her to offload karma to the beneficiaries to get a ticket to heaven.
Your protagonist (the aforementioned Robinhood) is running out of time and needs to get this before everything comes to and end.

They say love makes the world go round. We have witnessed some amazing classic love stories like Romeo and Juliet, Laila and Majnu, Shah Jahan and Mumtaz, we have also lived through the celluloid versions of others like DDLJ, the Notebook, etc. Some stories have seen the rising sun while for other’s there was no light after the tunnel.
This ArttrA, we want you to revive any of those classic love stories albeit set in the present modern times. Mould it, bend it or tweak it and five these classic stories the freshness they deserve without changing the essence of the story
The catch – Get creative. Tweak the ending. GIve it a brand new twist.
