Written by one of the most prolific and hard hitting writers of modern India, Mr. VIJAY TENDULKAR, MASSAGE tries to peep into the under belly of today's society through the escapades of HAPPY KUMAR who comes to join the film industry to become an actor but unfortunately becomes the fourth assistant director of a film maker called KOLHI who specialises in the snake and sex genre of cinema.
With his sensitivity gone for a toss, he becomes worn out and disillusioned and finally lands up in a ladies gym as an instructor, But here too his days are numbered but Happy learns the intricacies of MASSAGE and becomes a famous masseur.
He meets many other interesting characters during his life journey. May it be cunning lawyer, or the unworthy politician, or his funny P.A. Pandey, or the woman of his life, or the heroine, or the heroine's mother, who almost molests him, Rakesh Bedi plays 24 different characters deftly in his inimitable comic style in a span of two hours with a good dose of humour.
