Shubh Yatra takes us on a journey with Mohan Patel (Malhar Thakar) and his friend Hardik Patel (Hemin Trivedi), two small-town residents facing the burden of debt after their milk business fails. Determined to overcome their financial struggles, they set their sights on finding employment in the United States, seeking the help of a dubious agent.

However, Mohan’s web of lies grows as he tries to conceal his true intentions. Will he fulfill his dream and repay his debt?

The journey was filled with laughter, and unexpected twists, leaving us all wondering if Mohan would make it or not. But that’s the beauty of storytelling – it keeps you hooked till the end. And now, as the film premieres on ShemarooMe, I couldn’t be happier to share this heartfelt tale with audiences in every nook and corner of the world.”
