The film is set in Mumbai, tells the story of ever growing human detachment with nature and how an urban family gets trapped in the concrete jungles of a metropolis. It reflects the wide-range conception of children drifting away and gradually forgetting their roots, and the circumstances that somehow push us into today's world of technology, but eventually the film gives out its social message in a satirical and light-hearted way. It is filled with subtle humour and has a sardonic style of storytelling. Sources say, the film tries to bring the Northeastern flavour for the first time in Bollywood mainstream cinema. Also in the film, it raises the issues of how Northeastern people face racism in the metro cities.
The film stars Dr. Palash Sen, Ira Dubey, Yashpal Sharma, Tinu Anand, Kymsleen Kholie, Prisha Dabbas, Saurabh Pandey and Carol Gracias. "Aisa Yeh Jahaan" is India's first Carbon Neutral feature film, with the help of CERE, an NGO from Mumbai, the production company has planted almost 370 trees all over India to make the film Carbon Neutral.
