Frustrated with his dwindling relationship, Aadil, a dreamy young photographer, spontaneously sets off to meet a girl he has connected with over the vast universe of the Internet. Far from the urban dystopia of Bombay he falls into Khushali's simple world of earthly delights. In her, he finds strains of Samira, as she was and as she has become. Tormented between the past and the present, If Only is the beautifully crafted journey of a boy exploring love, himself, and the endless possibilities of "if only".
