A young adult Rumi of Parsi ethnicity is ignited by a passing comment of a family friend to pursue a career in Bollywood. On his 21st birthday, his mother gifts him one of many heritage pieces of his late father and wishes for him to join the family run café called Rustom Café. Rumi who has been forced to be like his father since childhood aspires to be a superstar. He joins Bansi's academy for method acting and lays eyes upon a fellow student 'Malaika' the very first day.

Rumi meets his mother with a bogus idea and tells another heart-less lie. His mother hands him over a diary of his grandfather's secret recipes and Rumi begins to work at the café the following day. There he talks to a friend Persis who's making a collage of stories on 'Irani cafes'. They interview people together and on one unfortunate night Persis falls in love with Rumi. Now, Rumi who is already in a relationship is seen having a very romantically staged sex aka cheating on his girlfriend who's away shooting a web series which is followed by another forced opinion about the importance of café and Rumi being blessed with magical fingers.
