Janardhan Jakhar (Ranbir Kapoor) is a young musician who imbibes a priceless piece of advice from his mentor – great music is borne from great pain. He sets out to find the pain that will make his life and music go beyond the realm of the ordinary. He proposes to Heer (Nargis Fakhri), whom he has known since college. The story of Janardhan and Heer starts off as one of laughter and mirth, but with every passing day, this becomes more intense, passionate and vulnerable. Heer and Janardhan get separated as she gets married off to Prague. Janardhan's pain of separation translates into words and music transcending the heart and soul. He becomes Jordan as he relentlessly pursues his love for Heer while hurling down the road of self-destruction mirroring his meteoric rise to fame.
