The film's main protagonist is Birju (Bobby Deol), a simple and carefree young man living in Pune with his mother (Farida Jalal). Despite his mother's constant nagging to get a job, Birju spends his time working on his passion for music. One day he meets Neha (Shabana Raza), who has recently moved to Pune with her parents (Sushma Seth and Gulzar Saabir). Neha is a bookish and introverted girl who is struggling to adjust herself in the new city. The two quickly form a bond and fall in love with each other.

However, their happiness is short-lived as Neha's parents disapprove of their relationship. Neha's mother believes that Birju is not a suitable match for her daughter as he is not financially stable and has no job prospects. To complicate matters further, Neha's father has his own share of secrets that he is hiding from everyone.

Despite these challenges, Birju and Neha try to make their relationship work. Birju tries to impress Neha's parents by getting a job and convincing them that he is the perfect match for their daughter.
