Rahul Mithaiwala is a forty-year old bachelor and lives in Mumbai. Rahul's parents died in a car accident when he was eight years old and it was his grandparents who brought him up. His grandfather has a sweet-selling chain store - Y.Y. Mithaiwala. Before his birth centenary celebration, two of Rahul's friends suggest a vacation in Goa which he accepts. On the day of the birth centenary, his grandfather dies whilst seeing a cricket match. His grandmother tells him that his grandfather desired to have his ashes divided into two parts - to be immersed in the Ganges River (in the north) and Rameswaram (in the south). She requests Rahul to go to Rameswaram and immerse the ashes.
