Plot

The story begins at the airport, when Rotlu, Jiggy, Bombs and Shaleen offer to tell Mala the tale of Jai and Aditi, a love story with joys and sorrows, happiness and heartbreaks, laughter, songs and fights, and…a climax at the airport.

Meet Jai Singh Rathore, a.k.a ‘Rats’, the most non-violent Rajput ever. Meet Aditi, aka ‘Meow‘, a highly aggressive, impulsive girl. She abuses. She scratches (hence the name Meow).However, Jai and Aditi are college-going best buddies.

Jai and Aditi are perfect for each other. Their friends know this. Their parents know this. Everybody but the two themselves know this.

Aditi dreams of a virile, macho husband, while Jai wants a sweet, romantic girl. Since the two of them don’t believe that they are in love, they decide to hunt for a perfect life partner for each other.

Jai falls in love with Meghna at first sight in a club where two psychos were misbehaving with her. He saves her, not by fighting but by tricking the two psychos, who always ride horses. Meghna always plays the game of imagination, “What’s this?” When Meghna and Jai get close to each other, Rotlu, Jiggy, Bombs and Shaleen are happy for Jai but nobody notices that Aditi was missing Jai’s company. Aditi notices changes in Jai’s behaviour.

Meghna informs Jai that her parents squabble together but cannot stay without each other. She says this is really “cute.” Jai visits Meghna’s parents. Her father is an alcoholic. Her parents always argue with each other and Jai feels uncomfortable with them.

When Jai goes to meet Meghna’s parents, he misses Aditi’s surprise birthday party. She is hurt by this and acts rudely to Jai when he goes to wish her later that evening.

Aditi gets engaged to her father’s friend’s son, Sushant. Sushant is a spoilt playboy. At Jiggy’s birthday bash, Aditi introduces her fiancé. Then everyone decides to dance. Aditi is disturbed because she is jealous seeing Jai with Meghna. Aditi becomes emotional seeing Jai. In the middle of the dance, Sushant thinks Aditi is crying because she likes him and kisses her. Jai sees this and stops dancing abruptly. While taking Meghana home, she tries to cheer him up, but it just results him in becoming more angry. He shouts at Meghana for acting childishly.

Jai realizes that Meghna is a girl who runs from the reality and hides in rather stupid refuges. Meghna breaks down, and lets Jai know how she became this way, and why. Meghna shares her dark childhood story of her father having an extra-marital affair and her mother leaving the residence, but later only returning for Meghna’s sake. Meghna is hurt when she sees her parents in pain solely on her account. But since there’s no other way round, she decides to close her eyes and see things the way she wants, in a happy manner. Therefore, according to her, her parents fight in a very ‘cute’ manner. All is happy in the way she sees things, and does not want anyone to remove this veil before her eyes until she is ready for it. The next day, to cheer up things, she kids Jai by saying that Aditi is the right girl for him and he should marry her instead. Jai is taken aback when Meghna laughs and apologises, saying that she was only joking, and did not intend to shock Jai. But Jai reveals that there is more truth to the joke than Meghna thinks, and says that he is actually in love with Aditi. Meghna is shattered and leaves with a goodbye kiss. Aditi reveals her feelings for Jai under duress from Sushant, who slaps her on her face, leaving a bruise. Aditi decides to go to America to study film at New York University. Jai spots the bruise on Aditi’s face and thrashes Sushant for daring to lay a hand on her.

Jai gets arrested for thrashing Sushant and is put behind bars. There, he encounters the two psychos, Bhaloo and Bhageere, who were harassing Meghna in the club. However, they find out that they are closely related cousins, separated in childhood. They tell him that to become a man in their Rathore clan, he must complete three conditions: 1.) Thrash someone 2.) Get arrested 3.) Ride a horse. They tell him that his father was a brave man and fought heroically but died while doing so. Jai realizes that his mother lied to him by claiming that his father was a non-violent person. Unaware of all this, Aditi makes her way to the international airport. Jai rides a horse, borrowed from his cousin, and heads towards the airport to chase her.

He crosses the security and seeks for Aditi. He finds her and sings a song for her i.e. tera mujse hai pehle ka naata koi yoon hi nahi dil lubhaata koyi jaane tu ya jaane naa…. (we have a relation of past anyone doesn’t become close to one’s heart know it or not accept it or not). Aditi, delighted, hugs him.

Rotlu, Jiggy, Bombs and Shaleen conclude the story and welcome Jai and Aditi, just returning from their honeymoon, at the airport. Mala introduces herself to them as Jiggy’s girlfriend.
