Parshya, although poor, has an excellent academic record and excels at reading and is the captain and star player of the local cricket team. On the other hand, Archi is a strong willed girl, who is also academically proficient, but more importantly, known as a headstrong girl who enjoys ‘masculine’ tasks like driving a tractor or riding a Royal Enfield motorcycle. As they both study in college together, it is observed that they slowly start falling for each other. Early on, Archi’s large and muscular cousin tries to intervene and beat up Parshya, but is ordered to stand down by Archi. They slowly find ways to spend time with each other, and fall in love.
