Synopsis: The pundit's son Kundan (Dhanush) has fallen for the girl at first sight. That they're both kids makes us dismiss it as a meaningless crush. But a few years later, the boy is still in love with the girl, Zoya (Sonam Kapoor). When she's in school, he follows her around holding her hand and getting slapped in the process. Finally, she relents because of his "consistency". The film shifts cities when Zoya gets into JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University), and through her, we are introduced to the idealistic and political culture of the place. She discovers a long-lost strength as she confronts and then falls for student leader Akram (Abhay Deol). The film takes a turn when Zoya returns to her hometown after eight long years only to find some things changed, and others surprisingly the same.

'Just like we need to breathe...'

'Just like we need to breathe...'

'...to live, all I want is a sweetheart.'

'When you're on the verge of dying...'

'...you'll realise some

important facts of life.'

'And, one of them would be...'

'...that, girls and rockets

can take you beyond any limits.'

'Look, that's me.'

'They completely rearranged my face.'

'30 minutes ago,

I was standing on my own two feet.'

'Just 20 minutes ago,

they broke 11 bones...'

'...and cracked my skull.'

'Murari was right.'

'This mess was created by me.'

'But someone's love had become

the bane of my life.'

'But my story doesn't start here.'

'My story starts at Beneras.'

All hail Lord Shiva.

- All hail Lord Shiva.

All hail Lord Shiva.

'I was a free soul.'

'It was not just difficult

but impossible to catch me.'

All hail Lord Shiva.

- All hail Lord Shiva.

All hail, sir.

Uncle Rameshwar,

out with some money.

This time we'll burn

Ravana's effigy in a way...

...that no one would dare

to burn Ravana's effigy again.

But why are you dressed

like Lord Shiva to ask...

...for donation for Dussehra?

You should have dressed up

like Rama, right?

Would Rama himself have

come to ask for donation...

...to save his own wife?

Would he have liked that?

That's why he sent me.

After all, I am His special friend.

Am I not?

Here you go.

All hail Lord Shiva.


Brother, did you see Bindiya?


That Kundan will spoil her.

Hide, hide. - Bindiya.

Seems like your

father has come, Bindiya.

Go. Or else all of us would

get beaten up because of you.

You are scared because my father

is a policeman, isn't it?

I am scared of nobody.

Your father has messed up my life.

Okay. Hold on. I'll call him.


Please. Quiet. Quiet.

I shall be doomed if I don't rip off

your father's clothes one day.

Come on.

All hail Lord Shiva.

Uncle, we've come from the

third lane of Hanuman Phatak.

For donation.

As we have to burn Ravana's effigy.

Hope you won't burn down someone else.

Uncle, if you think this is a lie.

You can come there and check.

Give it. Give him the receipt.

Here. 100 rupees.

Okay. Junaid. Get 100 rupees.

- Yes.

Murari, we...

'That day, that very moment,

that very second...'

'...it felt as if Lord Shiva

had answered all my prayers. '

'200 years ago

the king of Banaras had brought...'

'...my forefathers

from a village in Tamil Nadu.'

'To be his personal priests.'

'But it felt as if Banaras

had accepted me today.'

'This was Banaras's first gift to me.'

'She was the one offering prayers...'

'...but it felt as if

my prayers had been answered.'

'I was still a kid.'

'But all of a sudden

it felt as if I was an adult.'

'Old enough to marry.'

'Old enough to live and die

in that girl's love.'

"All I demand is you."

"All my immaturity is limited to you."

"All my eyes look for are you."

"You give me joy as well sorrow."

"Only you. Only you. Sweetheart."

"All I want is you.

But it's all up to you."

"All I want is you.

But it's all up to you."

"All my hardships are limited to you."

"All my intelligence is limited to you."

"All I prepare for is you. Only you."

"Only you."

"I am smitten by you and you only."

You dare tease the girl

of our territory.

Dogs have territories.

- Lions have guts.

Darn you.

Hey...don't beat me. Okay.

I will beat you

to an inch of your life.

Murrari. Don't let them get away.

Catch him.

Look aunt, these scoundrels

have been beaten up again.

They were teasing with girls.

Aunty, we only fell down.

She's lying.

"Delicate. And shy. Delicate.

My heart lets out a tune."
