'Bolo Raam' is the story of a boy Raam Kaushik (Rishi), who is charged with the murder of his mother Archana, played by Kohlapure. Raam falls in to a state of shock, brief psychotic disorder, after his mother's death and become silent, refusing to talk or react in any manner.

The story unfolds as the investigating officer, Indrajeet Singh Rathi (Om Puri), consults a Psychiatrist Dr N S Negi (Naseeruddin Shah) to determine Raam's state of mind and the reason for his slience.

"I play a psychiatrist who is given a task to make Raam speak so that the truth is unveiled. It is a very intense character and I enjoyed working with Rakesh, who has been a great actor before he came to directing this film," Shah said.

"It feels great to be working with Padmini after a long gap. We last worked together in 'Wo Saat Din'. Also teaming up with Om after 'Maqbool' and 'Shoot on Sight' was a nice experience yet again," Shah added.

The music is by Sachin Gupta and singers Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan have lent their voices for the film.
