Diwali Boy's Last Dance is a satire on corporate crime. It is the story of the struggle of a reasonably honest group of people to define their attitudes towards corporate wrongdoing. Should they be completely honest, or completely dishonest, or somewhere in between, depending on circumstance? Does corporate life amount to a life of adhoc honesty? Is it a continuous dance of flexible ethics, where you take two steps forward and two steps back, keeping time to the criminal heartbeat that runs through the country’s DNA?
This story revolves around the struggle of Samir, who is a 'good boy' in his own eyes, as he comes face to face with the well entrenched demon of corporate crime in India. Samir encounters professionals who are criminals and criminals who are professionals. It is a world of cheating, back stabbing, frauds and bribes. His first impulse is to flee, but when he realises that corporate criminals are all around him and come in surprising and sophisticated shapes, he is left with no option but to fight back; but how do you fight the corporate Raavan with multiple heads? Through honest means or do you have to become a thief to catch one?
With his back to the wall, Samir gambles it all on that one last dance.
