Plot[edit]

The principal character is a 25-year-old woman named Ananya (Ayesha Takia). The story takes place in a beautiful hill station called Ganga in Southern India's Nilgiris district, where Ananya resides with her father, Ashok Mahadeo (Raghuvir Yadav), and aunt, Gayatri Garg (Tanvi Azmi). Ashok is the head of the local Kishore Kumar fan club while Gayatri runs a restaurant. Ananya's mother left home years ago to pursue her dreams. Ashok still waits for her to return. A local shopkeeper, Gangaram, has feelings for Ananya.

In order to support herself and her father, Ananya runs a watch repair store where she ends up meeting a stranger named Andy (Rannvijay Singh). He comes everyday to get his water-logged watch repaired and leaves a INR 100 note in the form of an Origami swan. Eventually, they fall in love. The story takes a dramatic turn when Ananya discovers the truth about Andy, who claims to be her classmate from school. He admits that he had a crush on her and had even agreed to wait 10 years to see her. She takes a liking to him and both hang out together while she attempts to deal with her creditor, Gangaram, and increasing pressure from R.K. Constructions who want to build a resort in the area. Her world shatters when she finds out that Andy had been killed several years ago, and the man claiming to be him is actually an inmate at the local mental institute.[1]
