The film takes off with Inder (Abhishek Bachchan) performing (singing) in Bangkok where as in his flashback we see his troubled childhood. As a child, Inder has grown up with a lot of bitterness thanks to his parents having constant fights. Bhalla (Rishi Kapoor) is Inder’s father who runs a bakery in Kasol.
After Inder graduates, his dad expects him to join his bakery business but Inder is interested in music. Not being able to convince his dad, Inder leaves his house and returns 10 years later when he receives a call stating him to collect his share from the bakery ownership.
This is a trap set by Cheema who has lent huge sum of money to Bhalla and is now wanting to take over his house and bakery. In the meanwhile, Inder learns that his mother Pammi (Supriya Pathak) is suffering from Alzheimer’s. If this was any less, there is also Inder’s girlfriend Nimmi (Asin) who is hitched to someone else but is still coaxing Inder to change his mind and commit to her. For some reason, she is always seen trotting with The Secret (book) which seems to be the philosophy of her life.
