The story begins in 1983 at a hospital, where Dr. Mathew Devasya anxiously paces the halls of a delivery room. He soon finds out that he has been blessed with a boy for which he praises God. A man who was next to Dr Mathew comments that a baby girl would have been much more problematic as he would have to worry all his life. At that very moment, the nurse comes out with the baby, apologizing that she made a big mistake, and the baby is actually a girl. Dr Mathew gives the guy who was next to him a glaze and praises God once again and thank him for his blessings.
The comical narrative then paces forward to 1999. The baby girl, Pooja Mathew, has grown up to become a tomboy in grade 10. She introduces the audience to her father, a doctor, who enjoys recording and listening to his own renditions of songs on tape. Annie is Pooja's mother, a college lecturer who loves cooking and appreciates her own culinary skills. She also has two friends Neetu, a flirt, and Donna, a foodie.

During one of their sessions, she advises Pooja to marry a man whom she loves or risk learning to love a stranger that she is forced to marry. Pooja decides then that she must find someone herself.
