Vijay was born reverse (Ulta). Sheth Lalchand, a millionaire business magnate of Jubbalpure, who fathered this abnormal addition to mankind, began suffering its chain reactions right from the day Vijay acquired mobility with the postures of a quadruped. Years later, when Vijay was Skipping about rather too vivaciously on his legs, his antics and acorabaties were immeasurably greater than those normally found in the average biped animals. The Himalayan patience of the unenvinable father, which has been withstanding the mounting shocks generated by Vijay's loud pranks with Society at hand and Life at Large, crumbled one day, in consequence whereof Vijay was thrown out of the sanctuary of grudging indulgence in the domestic sphere... thrown out into the wide open world to seek a date with Destiny and play out his pranks with it.

How in course of that game with Destiny Vijay goes through rib-tickling funfare, spine-chilling gun-fare, and heartitching 'La affaire,' (with the cutest daughter of Eve... Wow: Wow:) is something which had better be seen on the silver Screen than read in the limited pages of a booklet which can hardly do proper justice to the "unique" talents of Vijay.
