A bunch of teenagers, out for the day in a mall.
Megha, who’s a lovable but bumbling idiot, is in love with Rahul, a good-looking guy in their group. All of them are friends, but he doesn’t seem to be specially interested in her.
Megha confides in two girls, Saira and Shyamoli, that she is going to tell Rahul she loves him. Shyamoli advises her against it – there’s no point in just telling Rahul pointblank, he will simply say no. Megha has to patao Rahul and make him fall for her.
A laugh-riot ensues as Megha tries to patao the unsuspecting Rahul…
