The film opens in the kitchen of Spice 6, an (fictitious) Indian restaurant in London. Waiters, busboys and chefs are busy at work taking orders, preparing food and serving up a storm. At the center of this restaurant is an ornery head chef, Buddhadev Gupta (Amitabh Bachchan), presiding over "London's best Indian restaurant". He is quick to fire a sous chef on the spot for making a small mistake. And he launches into a grand speech about the rise of the restaurant to prominence, the art of cooking, how it stirs all the senses and about the discipline and commitment required to maintain its stature.
One of the waiters, affectionately called Colgate (in reference to the brand of toothpaste) and incessantly teased because of his protruding front teeth, brings back a Hyderabadi Zafrani Pulao. A patron sends it back, claiming it has too much sugar; "cheeni zyada hai." As a meat dish, it should not have any of the sugar which, unbeknownst to Buddhadev, a sous chef had accidentally added. The great Buddhadev is enraged. He brings it back to the table and upbraids the patrons. The patrons quietly leave. Buddhadev returns to the kitchen muttering about low air fares bringing planeloads of bloody tourists who simply cannot appreciate his art.
The next day, Colgate brings back another Zafrani Pulao. Buddhadev tastes it and rattles off its ingredients. He pronounces it the "child" of his kitchen, the best Zafrani Pulao in town. Colgate meekly informs him that it was not sent back, but cooked specifically for him by the previous night's patron.
That patron is Nina Verma (Tabu).
Over the next few days, Buddhadev and Nina run into each other a few times. Nina, a 34-year-old software engineer, is intelligent, charming, playful, and strong willed, all under a quiet external demeanor. Buddhadev is every bit the pompous, irritable and lonely old man. He returns every night to his home and his aged mother (Zohra Sehgal). The bright spot in his life is his quick-witted 9-year-old neighbor, Sexy (Swini Khara). She teases him, checks up on him and dispenses advice (with wisdom beyond her age) about his problems. For all her wit and wisdom, Sexy suffers from leukemia. She laments that she is not able to watch A-rated (analogous to R-rated) films. Buddhadev offers to bring her some DVDs (later, she says there is nothing in them she didn't already know). She fast-forwards through them all, in order to watch them as quickly as possible.
Buddhadev gradually gets closer to Nina. There is a constant, lively banter between them. She asks him why he has fired yet another sous chef; if he is pleased to accept compliments about the food prepared by the sous chefs, then he should gracefully accept criticism (and in this case fire himself!), as well. Buddhadev is gradually summoning the courage to ask her out on a date; she playfully suggests that he should come right out and ask without fear. Ask her name, she says, with a coy smile.
During the next week, Buddhadev asks her if she will marry him and she accepts. When she goes to talk with his mother, she gets a phone call about her father, in Delhi, being admitted to the hospital. Right around this time, Sexy's condition worsens and she is admitted to a local hospital.
Buddhadev arrives in Delhi to meet Nina's father, Mr. Verma (Paresh Rawal). Mr. Verma is a typical Indian retiree. He spends his life in Bhajan (devotional songs, mainly focused on Gandhi), Bhojan (food) and Bhajji (a reference to cricketer Harbhajan Singh). Nina informs Buddhadev that her father, at 58, is six years younger than he! After a few false starts, Buddhadev asks Mr. Verma for his daughter's hand in marriage.
Mr. Verma is shocked and disgusted. He flatly refuses. "Over my dead body," he raves at Nina. She immediately, yet quietly, asks him when he plans to "go." He calmly tells her that he is concerned about her. Buddhadev is already an old man; how much longer can he live? She says she prefers spending a few years with a man she loves, instead of a lifetime with someone she does not.
It is a stalemate. Mr. Verma puts up a bhookh hartal (hunger strike, something commonly employed by Gandhi as a means of peaceful disobedience). Buddhadev arrives at the denouement. What is Mr. Verma's problem? He lays out the facts and addresses Mr. Verma's fears. He is adequately covered by insurance; Nina need not worry.
Mr. Verma finally relents. No sooner does Buddhadev hear this than he receives word from London that Sexy has died.
The film ends with Buddhadev, Nina, Buddhadev's mother and Mr. Verma having dinner at Spice 6. Buddhadev offers to fulfill one of Mr. Verma's life goals: watching the England vs. India test cricket match at Lord's.
