Nikhil a professional wakes up in bed the day for his pitch for an advertising project he plans to do, next to Tara, his girlfriend of 1 year in the city of Thailand. It's obvious they are having commitment issues with his career taking a precedent over the vision of a committed family life. However, despite Nikhil's plan of getting hitched materializing takes time, he is still postponing meeting her mother. On the way to office, he spills juice on himself and several other incidents occur between him and his girlfriend. Nikhil does his presentation, which she interrupts thinking that she had some papers that he needed.

Nikhil has forgotten her anniversary concert, but despite spending a boy's day out after losing the pitch, he hasn't gotten over his feeling of guilt and commitment phobia. Post her concert, he tells her that is willing to give their relationship a last shot, because a CAB DRIVER tells him so...

Despite her repeated pleas, he follows her in the car to witness a fatal car accident. After the tragedy of the previous day sunk in, Nikhil wakes up to find Tara still next to him and immediately freaks out!

It's also obvious that the same day is repeating itself as if the previous day was a bad dream. And Nikhil in all his sincerity tries to hold on and better the previous day's actions including taking a different route to office much to Tara's amusement. But from the signs on the road, and the street singer's point of view the destiny cannot be altered.

So Nikhil takes the last resort by taking her away to the countryside, after which she takes him to meet his mother and his step dad. A reconciliation happens and Nikhil learns to accept the reality of life and the warmth of his step father who missed having his only son at home. Tara brings laughter to the household as if a daughter has come upon them.

But as they are back it dawns on him that the fatalistic night is drawing close and as they plan the evening together he gets her the much awaited engagement ring and gets her music sheets distributed and arranges for the crew of the concert to play her song and gets her to sing.

At the end of the evening, they have dinner and he gifts her an engagement ring and as they walk into a car, destiny is defied.

P/S; Cerita sangat menarik. Walaupun pelakon tak galmor tapi menyentuh perasaan saya. Dia cuba mengubah takdir kematian girlfriend seperti yang berlaku dalam mimpi, tapi tak sangka, dia yang pergi....
