Massage is a story of Happy Singh who comes to the city of dreams – Mumbai – with a goal to become an actor. Instead of working as a struggling actor, he becomes the fourth assistant director to filmmaker Kohli whose forte is masala movies. With no pay and surviving on minimum transport allowance, Happy meets various people becoming the fodder for some very interesting stories; be it the quintessential Punjabi director, the heroine, or the heroine’s mother who almost molests him. Seeing that his life is going nowhere, he quits on a whim and becomes a gym instructor, meeting women from different walks of life. The next adventure in his life starts when he becomes a famous masseur.
