Plot edit

Abhinav "Chintu" Kumar Tyagi is an ordinary middle-class man from Kanpur, and a government engineer in the Public Works Department (PWD). He has been married to Vedika Tripathi, a teacher from Lucknow. Chintu is happy but is troubled by his controlling parents for not planning a child, and by Vedika, who wants to move to a big city.

Pressured and bored in his day-to-day life, Chintu finds comfort in Tapasya Singh, an aspiring fashion designer from Delhi, who is related to his boss and came to select a plot for starting her fashion business. Chintu finds himself drawn towards her and decides to enjoy his life. He lies to her that Vedika is having an affair with Rakesh Yadav, who is actually a student in her class besotted with her.

Chintu goes on dates with Tapasya and though he tries to avoid Vedika, she finally sees the two of them together one day. She keeps this to herself and listens as he lies to her. Vedika attends her cousin Kanupriya's wedding, where she meets her ex-boyfriend Durgesh "Doga" Kanojia, a local womanizer whom she had left for Chintu. The two resolve to leave the country and shift to Canada. Meanwhile, Chintu goes to Tapasya's home in Delhi and meets her friends. They go to a nightclub and party; she seduces a drunken Chintu and is ready to kiss him, but Chintu is held by his conscience.

Chintu realises he has wronged Vedika, but it is too late, as she tells him she is leaving him and knows of his infidelity. Chintu realises how much he loves her. Distraught, he visits Vedika's parents with his best friend Fahim, but her parents give them her letter, wherein she states that she is eloping with Doga. At Doga's travel agency, Chintu and Fahim are roughed up by Doga's henchmen. When he visits Tapasya at her home and warns her that she cannot take Vedika's place, she asks him why he chooses to remain unhappy when she is there for him. Working himself up in a fit of rage while drunk, he smashes Doga's shop and is arrested but Fahim pays for his bail.

One morning, Rakesh arrives with Fahim to find a depressed Chintu at home and informs him that Vedika is departing to Canada for good. The three rush to the Lucknow Airport, with Chintu's family and police in hot pursuit. At the airport, Chintu finds Vedika, Tapasya and Doga. Tapasya spares him, saying that she will not slap him no matter how much she wants to because he did not get intimate with her while in Delhi. He finds out that it is Doga who is going to Canada and that this was Doga's plan to make him realise Vedika's worth. Vedika forgives him and they reconcile.

Eventually another girl, Neha Khanna, enters his office; he initially stares at her but restrains himself. As she goes out the door, he calls out her name while she calls him a 'weirdo' to herself.
