A young man diagnosed with a terminal illness wishes to spend the few remaining days of his life in solitude away from his family. He comes to a hill station and there he comes across a girl, who seems to be his complete opposite and full of life. As they keep playing tricks on each other they get closer to each other. One such incident makes him aware of a shocking truth about her, which changes both their lives forever.

In 1989, an 11-year old Delhi girl named Geethanjali was suffering from terminal cancer and wrote her thoughts and emotions in a diary, which was published around that time. Mani Ratnam
was moved when he read the diary, and named his film, and the title heroine, after the little girl. See more
