Ajatashatru "Aja" Lavash Patel (Dhanush), who has lived all his life in a small Mumbai neighborhood, is a street magician and prankster who tricks people into believing that he possesses magical powers. After his mother's untimely death, he sets off on a journey to find his estranged father in Paris. There, he meets a woman named Marie (Erin Moriarty) in a furniture store and is soon smitten. Aja then experiences a series of adventures around the world, all while being pursued by Parisian taxi-driver Gustave, whom he swindled out of a cab fare.
