Story Details
 

S.K (Shahid Kapoor), Nauti (Shraddha Kapoor), and Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma) are childhood friends. S.K is a hypocrite, mean lawyer making money from out of court settlements. Nauti is an over the top fashion designer who thinks highly of herself.

Things were breezy until Tripathi opens a small town Printing Press. Within months, he is charged with an Inflated elctricity bill of 1.5 Lakhs, which escalates to 54 Lakhs in the following months. With no where to go and complain, Tripathi commits suicide. S.K is set aback by the events and has a change of heart. He decides to fight out against SPTL , a Privatised Electricity Company responsible for the Inflated Bills. He has Advocate Gulnaar (Yami Gautam) representing SPTL as his opponent. It turns out Tripathi doesn't die and returns to court to win the case.

Others Comment:
Batti Gul Meter Chalu sticks to the old-fashioned route and leaves us on a note of optimism, but it does it with a sting that takes note of today’s India and how promises can be belied: ‘bade badhiya din aaye thehre’, says a character with biting sarcasm, and the reference to ‘achche din’ was not lost on a single soul in the theatre. Singh, whose previous outing Toilet Ek Prem Katha was with Akshay Kumar, has an easier job this time around. Shahid’s character is more cad than hero, even though Kapoor can’t resist doing some amount of grand-standing and hero-giri. Shraddha bravely dons the most hideous ‘ordinary small-town girl’ outfits to her advantage, and Sharma gets almost as big a role as the other two. We believe that these are people like us, and we want them to win.
