Bareilly Ki Barfi is the story of Bitti who lives in a small town but harbours dreams of living a contemporary lifestyle often making her feel like a misfit in her community. While her father supports her through everything, it is Bitti’s failure to get married which irks her mother, eventually causing her to run away from home. But, when she reads a book titled ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ by an unknown author at the railway station, she realizes that there is hope for her and sets out to find the book’s author.
Concealing his true identity as the author, Chirag meets Bitti and falls head over heels in love with her. However, realising Bitti’s fixation in meeting the author, Chirag takes Pritam’s help with the aim to steer Bitti in Chirag’s direction. However, as fate would have it, the situations take a turn for the worst as Pritam advents on a mission to steal Bitti’s heart and complicate matters for Chirag!
