The story is set in the 1990s, proved to be a huge success in the box office.
Dagdu’s Story : Dagdu,a teenage boy is the son of a rickshaw driver. He belongs to the typical lower middle-class family in the society. With no interest in education he is unable to pass his SSC exam. As a consequence, his parents became furious and kick him out of the house.
Dagdu realizes that he has to do some work to support himself. Thus, he begins delivering newspapers to make a living. One day while delivering the newspapers, he came face to face with his staunch enemy ‘Lele’ (portrayed by Vaibhav Mangale). Lele too belongs to middle class, but unlike Dagdu, he is well educated and dislikes everything about Dagadu, especially his crude language.
During this period, Dagdu’s friends suggested him that he desperately needs a girlfriend in his life, and then explain to him in a humorous manner the various kinds of love.
Around this time, Dagdu met Prajakta, a teenage girl, who his friends consider as ‘MM’, (which stands for marriage material). Dagdu attempts to impress Prajakta mostly with Bollywood style methods. Some of his attempts included singing songs, stalking her etc.
Finally, he realizes that he has actually fallen in love with her, not just looking for a Timepass. Besides, the ending also suggested that a sequel to this movie was coming. A couple of years later, Timepass 2 was released.
