Former principal Dean Yogendra Vashisht (Rishi Kapoor) has aged and fallen ill.
He desires to see the students from his last batch, who were part of the "Student of the Year" competition. Some former students arrive to the hospital to meet the Dean and talk about their regrets from ten years ago in college. They hold themselves responsible for the lively Dean having falling ill.
