At twenty, Guddu Engineer, finds his life close to perfect. Two great friends, an engineering course in progress and acceptance by the girl he so loves.
To impress upon the lovely Sonia Kashyap, Guddu prepares a list on her birthday. A list of everything that Sonia likes. From a Mahendra Singh Dhoni haircut to getting rid of Manucha, the flirt. From gifting her poetry by Rumi to taking the perfect 'facebook display picture' over the Allahabad Naini bridge. He is on course to settling Sonia's life for good. And supporting him all along are Football and Khatri, his buddies.
However along with this pure and sweet journey, Guddu is also involved in a sinister one. One that would bring him to the crossroads where one path leads to achieving love and other to losing it forever.
Guddu Engineer symbolizes youth, both from India and Pakistan. For them each day is a vote between warmth and loathing. Ultimately the story's moral can be best encompassed in what Rumi said: 'it's not our task to seek love but the barriers we have built against it'.
