At twenty, Guddu Engineer, finds his life close to perfect. Two great friends, an engineering course in progress and acceptance by the girl he loves. But then one simple choice between love and hate changes it all. To impress upon the lovely Sonia Kashyap, Guddu prepares a list of everything she likes on her birthday. From a MahendraDhoni haircut to getting rid of Manucha, the flirt. From gifting her poetry by Rumi to taking the perfect 'DP' over the Allahabad Nainibridge, he is on course to woo Sonia for good. Supporting him all along are his two buddies, ‘Football’ and‘Khatri’. However while on this pure and sweet journey, Guddu is also involved in a sinister one – one that would bring him to a crossroads where one path leads to achieving love and the other to losing it forever. Guddu Engineer symbolizes the youth, both from India and Pakistan for whom each day is a vote between warmth and loathing. Ultimately the story's moral can be best encompassed with a line from Rumi's poetry which Sonia cherishes: “It's not our task to seek love but the barriers we have built against it."
