Aniruddh "Anni" Pathak is a divorced middle-aged man living with his teenage son Raghav, an aspiring engineer, who is awaiting his JEE results in hopes of enrolling in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). On the eve of the results, Aniruddh gifts Raghav a bottle of champagne, promising him that they will celebrate his success together, unaware that Raghav is under intense pressure. The bottle of champagne only fuels Raghav's worries that he might not make it. The next day, while checking the results at his friend's apartment, Raghav finds out that he has indeed failed his exams and, afraid of being called a "loser", he jumps off the balcony. Aniruddh rushes to the hospital where he tries to comfort his ex-wife Maya, Raghav's mother. The doctor informs Maya and Aniruddh that Raghav's condition is deteriorating because Raghav doesn't have the will to live.
