Saajan finds his life rather lonely despite living in the bustling city of Mumbai. He is widowed and working in an unfulfilling job that leaves him only with dreams of retirement. However, things look to be about to change when a lunchbox delivery gets sent to him by mistake by neglected housewife Ila who had meant to send it to her husband Rajiv. After her husband makes no notion that he was aware of the mistake, Ila sends a note about the incident in the next lunchbox and she and Saajan soon find themselves exchanging daily thoughts about their lives, their feelings and their need for happiness. If Ila's marriage cannot be saved, will her food weave its way to Saajan's heart instead?
