Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], December 08: Original web series are the flavor of the season, drawing viewers with mature content and innovative stories across genres.

A family drama that touches the viewer’s heart, this first-of-its-kind Gujarati web series has succeeded in making viewers reflect on the importance of kin in one’s life. The COVID pandemic changed many people’s outlook towards life. Many began to worry about the future, forgetting to live in the present in order to give their family a secure future. Their lifestyle is stressful, and the only thing that matters is earning that extra buck, not for themselves but for their families. In this, often they forget their families.

The story revolves around Amar, who is in pursuit of securing and providing a better future for his family. As a result, his complete focus is only on work, and this is to the extent of excluding everything else in his life, including his family. Working all the time to secure his future, he is stuck in the rat race and forgets to live in the present. He begins to neglect the happiness of his loved ones.
One day, he refuses to attend his own marriage anniversary celebrations due to office work. That same day, he has an encounter with Yamraj, the God of Death. Yamraj warns him that his time is up, and he has only two days left till death. Amar tries to negotiate a three-day extension to live and make things right. Does Yamraj agree? Does Amar get an extension? Does Amar change his approach to life? How do his wife, Mansi and daughter, Vyoma react? Does Amar’s relationship with his son, Abhi improve?
