Abey Yaar! is a critique and social commentary on the prevailing times that are steered heavily by technology and digital existences. Through a seemingly casual, fun reunion of five friends over a Zoom call, the story sheds light on human behaviour driven by social anxiety, issues of gender, caste, class, and everything in between.
