KALABAAZ is the story of man's faith in GOD.

Vijay, an expert Trapeeze artiste in a circus who keeps bragging talents in Trapeeze feats, is a nor-believer in God. Radha, who is also familiar with circus Trapeeze is a firm believer in God and has a firm faith in God Radha-Krishna of the Temple Paharpur. Vijay and Radha inspite of having opposite views about faith in God, meet and fall in love.

In a dangerous Trapeeze feat Radha meets with a near-to-death accident for which Vijay holds himself responsible and attributes his non-belief in God as the reason for the same.

This incident transforms Vijay and he becomes a firm believer in God. About the same time the priceless of God Radha-Krishna in the Temple of Paharpur is stolen which comes as another shock to Radha.

How Vijay, with three of his circus friends, uses his talents and acrobatics in getting back the priceless idol of God Radha-krishna and reinstating the same in the Temple of Paharpur and how his new belief and faith in God gets him back is beloved Radha is the climax of KALABAAZ.
