Aarti Shukla (Kriti Kharbanda) meets Satyendra Mishra (Rajkummar Rao), a clerk in the Excise Department, on her parents persistence who are trying to fix an arranged marriage for her. Aarti is impressed by Satyendra's liberal and progressive views while Satyendra is mesmerized by Aarti's beauty and intelligence as a consequence of which both of them fall in love with each other and agree to get married. On the night of marriage, Aarti comes to know that she has cleared the Civil Services Exam from her sister Abha (Nayani Dixit), who also informs her that if she gets married now her in-laws won't let her pursue the dreams that she has. On her sister's insistence Aarti decides to run-away from her house without informing anyone, including Satyendra who is shocked to know about the incident and is left heartbroken. Five years later, Aarti who is now a PCS Officer is accused of taking a bribe and suspended till her case is resolved. During the investigation Aarti comes to know that the officer in charge of her case is Satyendra Mishra, who has now become an IAS Officer. What comes as a shock to Aarti is the indifferent behaviour displayed by Satyendra who has no sympathy for her.

Aarti approaches Satyendra for assistance but is shunned away by him. The investigation is completed and Aarti is proven innocent. It is later revealed that it was actually Satyendra who helped in the investigation to prove Aarti's innocence.

Aarti later tries her best to make amends with Satyendra but to no avail. A few months later, Aarti is shown to be getting married to someone and Satyendra's family is also invited. On the day of the wedding, Satyendra realizes his love for Aarti and gate-crashes into her wedding. It is revealed that the wedding was only a drama planned by both the families to make Satyendra realize his true feelings. The movie ends with Aarti and Satyendra getting married.
