In Goa, they meet a girl called Luna( Puja Gupta) and Luv started liking her. The boys get invited by Luna to a rave party held on an isolated island. A Russian mafia arranged the party to launch a new drug called D2RF. However, Hardik, Bunny, and Luv didn’t take the drug as it is way too expensive. The next day they find out that the island is colonized by the zombies. Three of them go to the village to rescue Luna and all of them stay together.

After reaching the shore of Goa they see that everything is destroyed. Boris, Luna, Hardik, Luv, and Bunny take out their guns. The movie ends on a note indicating an apocalypse of the zombie.
First of all the makers of the movie deserve a kudos for a unique attempt. This zombie based comedy movie (often called as zom-com) has a fresh approach. The storyline is pretty much strong and the actors have done a fine job in their respective roles. The young bunch, Vir, Kunal, and Anand are quite promising. The dialogues are hilariously funny and enticing enough. Saif is seen in a completely different avatar and it is pretty much likable. The song ‘babaji ki booti’ goes too well with the entire concept of the movie. The encounter with the zombies might turn out to be a bit monotonous for the viewers otherwise if you are a fan of comedy movies then you will love the movie. Apart from being a comedy movie, it provides a very important social message to the audience. The zombies are the results of what drugs can do to the entire human race. Overdosed on dangerous drugs the zombies have turned out to be a threat to humanity. Driven by hunger they have become flesh eater. The movie tries to convey how dangerous drug is to our society. The makers have chosen the title of the movie very strategically, as Goa is known to be a place where the youth gather and partake in things like a rave party. The inspiration and concept of the movie have been taken from the English series. More of such content could be watched live on TV and streamed online for free. Well, though the concept was appreciable execution lacked in real. Overall the movie is a good package. However the story is not over, they will be back with a sequel in the near future.
