Avi takes up a job in the hills to act on his love for Naina. However, his only weakness is that he is never able to confess his feelings for the woman he loves. Avi, on the advice of his friend writes a love letter, which lands in the hand of Naina's mother Rukmani (Hema Malini).

Shimla Mirchi is Ramesh Sippy's first outing as a director after ages. The film was reportedly stuck in limbo for around five years and is said to be aimed at an OTT release. The film borrows its basic idea from the legend of Cyrano de Bergerac. A letter meant for someone is passed off to another person, leading to complications.

Ramesh Sippy's first theatrical release in a quarter of a century should be an event - but it's a bit of a sideshow. Completed five years ago and out in theatres only now, Shimla Mirchi feels resolutely old-fashioned (which isn't a bad thing at all) but also fusty (which is).

Ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Hema Malini's on-the-road campaign in Mathura yielded some of the best memes of the year. Among them, my favourite, was Malini crouching under a haystack, held by an old frail lady. Shimla Mirchi is the cinematic version of that meme, where Malini is the film and the old lady is the script.

Avinash (Rajkummar Rao) is on a vacation with his family in Shimla, when he spots the feisty local girl Naina (Rakul Preet) and decides to propose to her.
