From Oye to Aiyyo, from dahi bhallas to bissi bella, from rajma to rasam, watch Rinkis life take one big 360 degree skid Vannakam. It's the summer of 2011 and sixteen-year-old Rinki Tripathi has just been sentenced to a life in Chennai. She is supposed to say goodbye to her BFF, her beloved hometown Dilli, basically her whole life. Surd jokes must step aside for Rajni forwards, parandis must make way for mallipoo, Delhi Daredevils must go down fighting Chennai Super Kings.
Guess what else heads south? Her grades. The princy wants to see more of her parents, her mom wants to see more of kanjivarams and her dad doesn't want to be seen at all. Then there is the school hottie, Tejas, who is making her decidedly hot under the collar. Shiva shiva. How is a girl supposed to cope with all this madness? Read on to find out. Just don't ditch Rinki midway. Mind it!
