Chhello Show tells a story that explores universal topics while capturing the flavour of Gujarati culture. It tells the tale of 9-year-old Samay (Bhavin Rabari) of Chalala, Saurashtra, Gujarat, who, after buying off the projectionist Fazal (Bhavesh Shrimali), spends the entire summer viewing films at a run-down movie theatre. He is so completely enthralled by films and the art of filmmaking that he decides to pursue a career in filmmaking, completely unconscious of the tragic circumstances that lie in store for him. Bhavin Rabari, Vikas Bata, Richa Meena, Bhavesh Shrimali, Dipen Raval, and Rahul Koli all play significant roles in the movie.
