For geeky science teacher Pavan, fellow teacher Chloe is the apple of his eye, the sugar and spice, the mango to his lassi. When Pavan manages to swing a date with his ‘English rose’ he is determined to be the ‘tall, dark and handsome man’ which he thinks (rather hopes) will win her over. Seeing this date as the only opportunity to woo her, Pavan plans to show her ‘the dosa spot’ hidden away – in the middle of nowhere – in London; but will he be the dashing Bollywood hero to light her fire or the ‘chumchee’ guy without a second date?
