Synopsis: Bangkok-based Tara Mishra and Nikhil Singh meet at a wedding ceremony and fall instantly in love with love with each. They move in together and continue to live a fairly blissful lifestyle until Tara is invited to India to attend a wedding. Nikhil not only refuses to accompany her but also refuses to introduce his widowed mother, Meera, who is now living with another male, Dilip, to her. Tara, a talented singer/dancer, feels neglected as he is always focused on his business, is not prepared to make any long-time commitment, and forgets important events. An encounter with a taxi-driver compels Nikhil to change his mind, but things do no work out, Tara leaves him and shortly thereafter passes away in an accident. A devastated and guilt-ridding Nikhil returns home, cradling her photo and falls asleep. He wakes up the next morning with Tara alive and well next to him. Was he hallucinating the events from the previous day or was he being warned by fate to change his ways?

I would have loved you more...

...if you wouldn't

have been such a nag.

But you don't get time

from your work, isn't it?

You love your phone more than me.

I don't just work for myself.

Don't I want to get married?

Really! And, how

can we get married...

...until we don't meet my parents?

Again you've started.


But your mom-dad live right here.


Whatever! But they live here.

Why don't you ever

introduce me to them?

You have me! What

will you do with them?

I have you, but you have work.

Okay! I have got a very

important presentation today.

And I don't want you pestering me.

- Okay!

If I can just get

this client, I swear...

And if you don't, then again

you will start running around.

Great, Tara! Great!

I am so sorry!

- Give it to me.

Please! I will do it, please.

Go and get ready!

Please, I will get more delayed!

Please, go and get a shower.



Yes! What happened?

Why aren't my dad's

cufflinks in the box?

In the box... - You know they

are very important for me.

Okay, I will put them back.

I haven't seen them.

The point is that, they

aren't in the box now. - Fine.

And I need them!

- It must be here!

Where can it go?

Let me find them. - No, no, no!

You haven't even changed.

Just two minutes, Nikhil!

- I have a presentation.

Please understand, I am

going to get late! - Okay!

Fine, I am getting ready!

- Please.

Okay, okay I am going.


No, no, no don't

discuss the pricing at all.

I am coming there.

No, no, no I am okay with it.


Hold on! Hold on!

Hey Anthony! Greetings.

Nervous! Are you kidding me?

Terrified is more like it.

Sure! Not a problem.


Absolutely! Not a problem, Anthony.

Well, I will see you soon.

And... it will be great.

Please do come this evening, okay.
