In today’s world of unrelenting pressures, challenged survivals and super fast life styles, the major source of Relief, Information and Entertainment is… the TV. So much so, that it has moved up from its modest position of being just another ‘house hold appliance’ to actually determining the power equation in a family. It is easy to identify the hierarchy in the family depending on who controls the Remote Control. So what happens when the TV realizes this power and begins to take control. What happens when instead of showing you the facts, the TV, begins to show you what it wants you to see. What happens when Manohar, to his great horror, realizes that this is exactly what is happening with his wonderful family, who has just moved into their sweet new home at 13B.
13B, a supernatural thriller set in an urban setting is the story of Manohar (essayed by Madhavan) an upwardly mobile middle class Indian moves into a new apartment – 13B on the 13th floor with his family.
