Subtle and ebullient, this upbeat love story revolves around the trials and triumphs in the life of Mumbai-based businessman Aditya Kashyap, who is heartbroken after the death of his father, combined with the ignominy of being unceremoniously dumped by his gorgeous girlfriend.
At a crossroads in life, he finds himself stepping into a BEST bus, travelling to Chatrapati Shivaji Train Terminus, and boarding a train. This is where he meets Geet Kaur Dhillon, who is returning home to Bhatinda, and who pays for his ticket. At Bar Nagar, he decides to leave, but she follows him, missing her train. They manage to get a ride to Ratlam, miss the train again, but eventually make it to Bhatinda.
Once there, he gets to meet her family; her pretty sister, Roop; as well as her to-be betrothed, Manjeet Singh Mann. Before the engagement becomes final, she manages to convince her family that she wants to marry Aditya, and they welcome him with open arms. Before he can figure out head or tail of the situation, he finds himself going along as Geet elopes with him - not to get married - but to re-locate to Manali - where her true love, Anshuman, is waiting, and whom she hopes to marry. How will Aditya respond to this whirlwind sequence of events? How will their respective futures unfold?
