In 2010, Bharat, a shopkeeper, refuses to part with his store despite lucrative offers. On the occasion of his 70th birthday, he tells his granddaughter the story of his life.

During the Partition of India in 1947, Gautam Kumar, his wife Janki, daughters Mehek and Gudiya, and sons Bharat and Chote, board a train to India along with many refugees to save themselves from the terrible riots in present-day Pakistan. The 7 year-old Bharat loses the toddler Gudiya in the chaos. Gautam stays behind to search for Gudiya and tells Bharat to take Janki, Mehek, and Chote to his sister's imported goods store. Gautam has Bharat promise him that the latter would always keep the family together.

As a child, Bharat takes all sorts of odd jobs to support his family. In 1964, as a pre-teen, he joins The Great Russian Circus with his best friend, Vilayati Khan, and spends a number of years there, and attains fame. He leaves the circus when Chote hurts himself in an accident while trying to emulate him. In the mid-1970s, Bharat joins the Indian migration prompted by the discovery of oil in Saudi Arabia to earn enough money for Mehek's marriage. Here, he falls in love with his chief engineer, Kumud Raina, and survives a mining accident. Kumud confesses her love for him, but he tells Kumud he can't marry her, as he is afraid such a commitment will come in the way of fulfilling his father's promise. Back home in India, Kumud arrives during Mehek's wedding to announce her love for Bharat, and starts a live-in relationship, albeit with Janki's approval.

Bharat's aunt dies in 1983. His uncle, in need of money, plans to sell the store, a decision Bharat disagrees with. He leaves India again with Vilayati as sailors for a period of 8 months, and earns enough money to buy the store. Kumud becomes the creative director of the then-newly-formed channel, Zee TV, and runs a program in which relatives separated during the Partition are reunited. Bharat is featured in hopes of finding his long-lost sister, Gudiya, and his father. A woman from London who was adopted as a child by a British family during the Partition comes on the program. Bharat converses with her, and realizes that she is indeed Gudiya. An emotional reunion ensues and Meher travels to India to see them. Janki passes away soon after. Bharat hopes to also find his father through the show but is unsuccessful.

In 2010, an elderly Bharat finally decides to sell his aunt's imported goods store, which, up to this point, he stubbornly refused to do despite the store's losing money. Before letting go on the train, Gautam had promised that he would come reunite with the rest of the family at the store, thus explaining why Bharat bought and held on to the store for so long. Bharat wistfully realizes that Gautam is probably too old now to still be alive. Bharat has a vision of Gautam, who assures him that he indeed kept his promise of keeping the family together. He tells Bharat that it is time to let him go and move on. Bharat breaks into tears and leaves the store. He gets married to Kumud, finally deciding to move on with his life.
