To realise her dream, Pooja secretly joins a coveted film studies course at the trendy St. Martin's College, keeping her father in the dark. At the college, the simple and straightforward Pooja instantly comes face to face with the hip and high-class students of St. Martins's and is made intensely aware of her middle-class looks and attitude. She is ill-treated by the well-to-do English speaking students who label her as 'vernacular' as she speaks in her Gujarati tone and accent. The story revolves around her college life as she gradually wins over her classmates, makes new friends and successfully completes her course.
Later, the story shifts to Pooja's life after college as she starts the new chapter in her life as an independent working woman. Her sister, Poornima falls in love with and marries Ronit.
