Anand (Sharwanand) is a young man with obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCD) and is very particular about tidyness. He doesn't even touch others since he is a Mysophobiac and has an unrealistic fear of hospitals since they have infectious patients. He, one day, meets Meghana (Mehreen Pirzada) after an incident involving a man spitting chewing gum on her shoe. He falls in love with her after she tells the man the importance of cleanliness. She later becomes his partner for a company project and eventually falls for him too. She decides to introduce Anand to her father, Ramaraju (Nassar), who has been waiting for his daughter to get married.

Although Meghana's father rejects him at first due to his eccentricities, Anand saves his stolen bag from a bunch of goons and he accepts him as his son-in-law. However at that time, Meghana's father suffers a heart attack. Her father begins vomiting blood onto Anand and Anand drives him to hospital along with Meghana. While driving, Aanand begins to recollect the incident again and again and is nauseated. Unable to hold his vomit, he stops the car by the road and gets down the car to vomit by the road. He then tells Meghana that he can't take her father to the hospital as he is nauseous which shocks her. Meghana takes her father to the hospital instead and breaks up with Anand because of his insistence over things being clean as well as for his selfishness.

In the later half, Anand goes to Meghana's village, as she didn't tell her father about their breakup. In their village, he experiences a lot things which bring out anger and the Mysophobia in him, but he controls his fears and stays for Meghana. In the end, he is pulled into a fight in mud to save the village and get Meghana's trust, which he wins but falls down as soon as the fight is over. The doctor reveals that he just had an infection due to fighting in the mud.

In the end, he is seen asking his son, who shares the same traits of his OCD, to not be obsessive but to enjoy life and they both are seen playing in the rain.
