Rahul Kapoor (Imran Khan) has always been on the road to perfection, as per the wishes of his over achieving father and socialite mother. However, life seems to have alternate plans for him when he suddenly loses his job as an architect in Vegas. Afraid that he has let his parents down, Rahul decides to hide the truth from his parents and find another job. The mental pressure breaking him down, he decides to go to a therapist, where he meets Riana Braganza (Kareena Kapoor), a quick-witted hairstylist, who is also there for therapy. A series of events lead Riana to believe he is stalking her for her ex-boyfriend, and she ends up taking his therapy file, beating him with it, and then making a dramatic exit. Later, she opens the file which reveals he is not a stalker but a 25 year old architect who was there for therapy, like her. Embarrassed, she calls him, apologizing for her behavior and wanting to meet him to return his file. They meet up, and since it is Christmas Eve but Rahul has no plans, she invites him to have a few drinks with her. Rahul is at first hesitant to go out with Riana, and even more hesitant to drink alcohol, but her claims that he is uptight change his mind and he stays to have drinks with her. A few drinks turn into a night of a lot of loosening up and craziness, as both of them are heavily intoxicated. The morning they after, however, they wake up to discover that they’ve gotten married. A horrified Rahul now has more than just his job loss to hide from his parents. They both decide to get it annulled as soon as possible and get an appointment from the court in ten days. Meanwhile, Riana, who is also unemployed and has not paid her rent, loses her house and an initially hesitant Rahul finally lets her stay with him till her problem gets resolved. During these few days they spend together, they get to know each other better, that Rahul was always interested in photography, and that Riana wanted to be a ballet dancer but couldn’t due to a childhood incident. Their friendship develops as Riana slowly pulls out the real Rahul hidden behind the compulsive, sad, uptight man he always used to be. They spend Riana’s birthday together, and she ends up gifting him a camera to pursue photography. As they grow closer, Rahul develops feelings for Riana, however she does not show any signs that she reciprocates them.

As New Year’s approaches, Riana has to fly back to India to her family, and comes up with the idea that Rahul should go with her. He disagrees initially, as his parents and Riana live in the same city, but succumbs to her argument when she mentions that he can “bunk school”, and that he doesn’t have to tell his parents anything. Riana and Rahul fly back to India, and he stays with her family, their friendship growing stronger with Rahul’s growing feelings for her. The next day, however, Riana takes him to visit her school, and amidst reflecting over past relationships she has had she takes him to the “kissing spot” she would come to as a school girl. Taking this as a hint, Rahul leans in to kiss Riana, who leans back and questions what he is doing. Realizing she does not feel the way he does, an angry Rahul leaves the school, only to almost run into a car revealed to be his mother’s. He then lies to his mother, telling her he is in India for a business research trip, and that Riana is a colleague. They proceed to have lunch with Rahul’s parents, where he webs a tale of intricate lies to avoid telling his father the truth. Things between Rahul and Riana are tense, as he takes the rejection as another addition to all the times he has felt this way in his life, especially since Riana was one person who accepted him for who he really was. He leaves Riana’s house and moves into his parents’, trying to tell his parents the truth, but once again feeling overpowered by his father. Finally, the next night, during a family dinner, he realizes how meaningless all the pretense he’s had to keep for all these years is and erupts in anger as he divulges the complete truth to his in-denial parents and their business partners. He expresses his unhappiness with his life, saying he’d rather just be himself than being pressured into becoming acceptable in the high-class society he belonged to, but receiving their lack of understanding, leaves telling them to enjoy their dinner. As he rushes back to Riana to apologize for his behavior, Riana explains that she is sorry too as she never intended him to fall in love with her while Rahul argues that her actions led him to believe that she had equal feelings for him. Riana says she loves him a lot, but values their friendship too much and does not want it to end up as another potential break up. After a night of reflection, and deep conversation, both decide to maintain their friendship.

The film ends with both returning back to Las Vegas, finalizing their annulment, and Rahul getting a new job as an architect, while keeping time out for photography and Riana. Both remain best friends, with an ending note from Rahul claiming that he is finally happy with his life, however he remains hopeful that one day he will convince Riana to go back to that chapel with him, but for now, this is just the beginning of their story.
