The year is 1953. A visiting archaeologist called Varun Shrivastav comes to the village of Manikpur in West Bengal to excavate the temple grounds of the local Zamindar. With knowledge and experience beyond his young demeanour, Varun greatly impresses the Zamindar and his family. Especially Pakhi, the Zamindar's feisty and only daughter, who finds herself irrevocably drawn towards him. But Varun isn't all he seems on the surface. As the simmering attraction between him and Pakhi flowers into a tender and deep love, he is forced to choose between her and his past. Making his choice, Varun disappears. Pakhi struggles to move on with her life, determined to forget him and their relationship. Until one day, when he returns under the most extraordinary circumstances.

The film is based on the short story The Last Leaf by O. Henry.

The film was initially set in the present time, and not in the 1950s. But during the story's developing stages, director Vikramaditya Motwane decided to make it a period romance because he felt it would have a better effect.

Ranveer Singh was required to exhibit pain for a scene, for which he went a step ahead and actually hurt himself by repeatedly piercing himself with a safety pin.
