The journey of a man travelling from Mumbai to Rameshwaram who falls in love with a woman who is the daughter of a powerful village headman in Tamil Nadu.




Rahul (Sharukh Khan) hails from a family of Mithaiwalas and has been groomed by his loving grandparents after his parents died in a car accident. The inopportune death of his grandfather sees him heading to Rameshwaram to immerse the ashes, at the behest of his grief-stricken grandmother. The adventure begins on the train when he helps the beautiful and intriguing Meenalochni (Deepika Padukone) onto the moving train. In hot pursuit of her, are four goons who have been sent by her father to keep her from fleeing from a forced marriage. Her father is a village headman who wants to extend his dominance and political clout to the neighbouring village. The best way to do this is to build a marriage association between his daughter and the son of the other village headman, which his daughter obviously opposes. In the midst of the cultural and language differences between Rahul and Meena, love blossoms. It is now up to them to convince Meena's father to accept their union, but will he give in?
