Plot Summary

A deliciously romantic coming together of Gulrez "Gullu" Qadir (Parineeti Chopra) a Hyderabadi shoe-sales girl disillusioned with love because of her encounters with dowry-seeking men; and Tariq "Taru" Haidar (Aditya Roy Kapur) a Lucknawi cook who can charm anybody with the aroma and flavours of his biryani and kebabs. In the clash of diametrically opposite but equally spicy cultures of Hyderabad and Lucknow, Gullu and Taru arrive at a "tuning-setting", rewrite traditional recipes of love, crush old-fashioned world-view and make their own masaledaar albeli rangreli pichchar - Daawat-e-Ishq.

Goofs [Around 0:43:40] Tariq spots a couple dining in his restaurant, while standing in the balcony. Though he only had a top view of them, he immediately recognised the man as Shahriyar Habibullah despite there being no indication of them having met before in life. They only had had a short conversation for scheduling the eventual interview meet over phone. See more »
