The film stars Rajkummar Rao as an IAS Officer and Kriti Kharbanda as a PCS Officer, who are brought together by a marriage proposal and fall in love with each other during the process but on the night of their marriage destiny takes the two of them in two different directions.[3][4] The film had a worldwide release on 10 November 2017.[5][6]


Aarti Shukla (Kriti Kharbanda) an intelligent girl, meets Satyendra Mishra (Rajkummar Rao), a clerk in the Excise Department, on her parents persistence who are trying to fix an arranged marriage for her. Aarti finds Satyendra's off-traditional views convenient, while Satyendra is mesmerized by Aarti's beauty and as a consequence both of them fall in love with each other . On the night of marriage, Aarti comes to know that she has cleared the PCS Exam and if she gets married, her in-laws won't let her pursue the dreams that she has. On her sister's and maternal uncle's provocation Aarti decides to run-away from her house without informing Satyendra or his family, who is shocked to know about the incident and is left heartbroken. Later her uncle manipulates Satyendra's family to return dowry money. Satyendra's family undergoes hard time with loss of face in the society, and mother selling all her jewellery to repay money to Aarti's family.

Five years later, Aarti who is now a PCS Officer is accused of taking a bribe and suspended till her case is resolved. During the investigation Aarti comes to know that the officer in charge of her case is Satyendra Mishra, who has now become an IAS Officer. What comes as a shock to Aarti is the indifferent behaviour displayed by Satyendra who has no sympathy for her. The investigation is completed and Aarti is proven innocent. It is later revealed that it was actually Satyendra who helped in the investigation to prove Aarti's innocence. Aarti later tries her best to make amends with Satyendra to marry him, but to no avail. A few months later, Aarti is shown to be getting married to Sharad and Satyendra's family is also invited. On the day of the wedding, Satyendra realizes his love for Aarti and gate-crashes into her wedding. It is revealed that Sharad is her brother-in-law and that the wedding was only a drama planned by both the families to make Satyendra realize his true feelings. The movie ends with Aarti and Satyendra getting married.
