Green Card Fever is the story of a young immigrant from India (Vikram Dasu) who overstays his US visa. As he is forced to make decisions about whom to trust, he naively relies on his new found friends in his land of dreams, and a comical and poignant sequence of adventures ensue.
He is told that "the fastest way to get anything done in America is to sue somebody" - and is led to believe that he can obtain a 'Green Card' by suing his lawyer (Deep Katdare). He is emboldened by anecdotes of a "famous hot coffee cup spilling case" where he is told that a court awarded the plaintiff a million dollars (for each thigh!)
However, his plans soon begin to go awry when he falls in love with a beautiful girl (Purva Bedi). His quick ticket to the "good life" in America gets greatly complicated and he encounters Love, Lies and The Law in his pursuit to live legally in America. As he muddles through and finds himself manipulated by immigrant taxi drivers and lawyers, he is torn between the beautiful girl he is falling in love with, and the comforting prospect of returning home to India.
