At the beginning of the film, Kabir (Abhay Deol) proposes to Natasha (Kalki Koechlin). Their families meet at the engagement party. At the party, Natasha learns that Kabir is planning a three-week bachelor road trip to Spain with his school friends Imraan (Farhan Akhtar) and Arjun (Hrithik Roshan). Kabir explains that the three have a long-standing pact, and that during the road trip, each of them will have to pick an adventure sport, which all three will try together. Initially, Arjun is reluctant to take part in the trip due to his workaholism and obsession with money. It is later revealed that Arjun's ex-girlfriend left him due to this reason. Imraan has an additional personal agenda on the trip—to find his biological father Salman Habib (Naseeruddin Shah), an artist in Spain. The trio set off to Spain, where they plan to visit Costa Brava, Seville, and Pamplona. On the way to Costa Brava, Imraan and Kabir find it annoying that Arjun works even during the trip. Imran casually throws Arjun's phone out of their car while in the middle of an important call. This leads to a misunderstanding, which ends up in a violent argument. Arjun, in a fit of rage, accuses Imraan of having an affair, four years back, with Arjun's previous girlfriend (a topic which was very sensitive both to Arjun and Imraan). After being pacified by Kabir and reaching their destination, they meet an Anglo Indian named Laila (Katrina Kaif) on a beach. Imraan flirts with her and makes Arjun jealous. Kabir reveals that he has chosen deep sea diving as their first sport, and they later find that Laila is their diving instructor. Arjun, who cannot swim and is aquaphobic, receives assistance from Laila. She helps him overcome his fears and finish the sport successfully. Upon a request by Laila, they attend the La Tomatina festival held in Buñol with her and meet Nuria (Ariadna Cabrol), who falls in love with Imraan. Meanwhile, Natasha becomes suspicious of Kabir's involvement with Laila and crashes his bachelor party trip, much to Kabir's discomfort in front of his friends. Imraan spends time with Nuria, and Arjun with Laila. After the boys leave, Laila realizes she has fallen in love with Arjun and chases them on a bike, not wanting to regret their partition if they don't meet in future. She and Arjun express their feelings for each other with a passionate kiss. On the way to Seville, Kabir drops Natasha at the airport, while Arjun and Imraan notice that something is wrong between her and Kabir. The trio visit Seville for sky diving, as per Arjun's choice. During the task, Imraan is forced to confront his acrophobia and hesitates to take part. However, they complete it without any obstacles. After skydiving, the three men go to a bar and get into a fight with a stranger on whom they had tried to pull a prank. They are jailed after the fight. Salman bails them out and takes them to his home. While speaking to Imraan, Salman reveals that he never wanted the responsibility of a married life with kids, while Imraan's mother did, which is why he never contacted Imraan. Imraan, heartbroken, realises how it would have felt when he had hurt Arjun four years back. He earnestly apologises to Arjun, and he readily forgives Imraan. The trio leave for the bull run in Pamplona, which was Imraan's choice. When confronted by his friends, Kabir confesses to Arjun and Imraan that he is still not ready for a marriage, but could not tell this to Natasha as he did not want to hurt her. On the morning of the bull run, Imraan suggests they make a pact to make a promise if they survive the event. Imraan vows to publish his poetry (he was secretly a poet), Arjun vows to go to Morocco with Laila, and Kabir promises to tell Natasha that he is not ready to marry her. As they complete the event, the friends gain a renewed sense of their relationships with each other, with others they know, and with themselves. As the credits roll, Imraan, Kabir, Nuria and Natasha are shown attending the wedding of Arjun and Laila in Morocco. Kabir and Natasha did not marry, but remain friends.Indeed, Natasha is seen with another boy, although it is unclear whether they are married or are unmarried lovers.

3 Young men take a holiday that changes their lives forever.
Goofs:
Continuity
When Hrithik and his friends see off Katrina and her friend at the hotel, Katrina asks for her friend's bike, at that time Katrina is wearing a pink top, then she follows Hrithik and they kiss, she is wearing a different top.

Continuity
When Arjun is talking to Kabir in the hotel, the night before skydiving, Kabir's arms are on his side while he's sitting on the bed. In the next shot, his elbows are resting on his lap.

Continuity
When Arjun kisses Laila, their heads are tilted to the right. In the next shot, their heads are tilted to the left, and then right again.

Continuity
When Katrina Kaif is introduced on the beach, Hrithik and Abhay Deol are sitting on the beach-bench. When Farhan comes, Abhay is sitting on the bench. Then in the next cut, Abhay Deol is lying down on his stomach on the bench. Then again in the next cut, Abhay is lying on his back on the bench. A series of these cuts show the continuity mistakes in that particular shot.

Factual Mistake
San Fermín (Bull Festival) happens mid July and Tomatina occurs at the end of August. But here Tomatina happens before San Fermín. Also, the trip was planned for a period of three weeks, therefore the trio could not have attended both of the festivals.

Factual Mistake
The festival sequence is off. The Running of the Bulls in Pamplona is in July, La Tomatina festival in Buñol is in August. Therefore, for sequential accuracy, the characters would've had to run with the bulls first, then participated in the Tomatina festival.

Factual Mistake
While in Costa Brava, when hrithik gets a call from Joe, the network name is displayed as Vodafone IN where IN stands for India, it should be the Spanish equivalent.

Factual Mistake
At the beginning of the film, Hrithik is supossedly in London but the terminal he's working on has a Spanish keyboard.
Trivia:
Zoya Akhtar wanted to cast 'Imran Khan' and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role but both declined in favor of acting together in their home production.

Katrina Kaif's introduction scene on the beach was shot on a nude beach. The production crew had to continuously request people to move out of the frame.

The La Tomatina festival shown in the movie was re-created in Bunol, Valencia, Spain with almost 16 tons of tomatoes specially flown in from Portugal.

The mayor of the town Alájar, Andalucia features in the song "Senorita".

Anupam Kher played the role of Imran's (Farhan Akhtar) adoptive father in a flashback scene that was cut from the final film.
