A story of a middle-class family man, who in his younger days, dreamt of becoming a singer and songwriter. It was more the lack of opportunity than talent that never realized his dream. Pinning his hopes on his teenage daughter, he takes her to singing contests where the awkward and overweight girl struggles to belt out a tune, leaving one wondering if she really has the talent to be a star singer.

In a chance meeting while job hunting, he runs into Baby Singh, India's biggest pop star. The story takes a comical turn when in the spur of the moment he decides to kidnap her. Will things go as planned? Told in a most hilarious and heartwarming way, the film tells us how far a father would go to make his daughter's dream come true.
