TARLA is the story of a woman’s extraordinary rise. Tarla (Huma S Qureshi) resides with her mother (Morli Patel), father (Kukul Tarmaster) and brother Rajni (Hardik Thakkar) in Pune. Her parents decide to get her married to Nalin Dalal (Sharib Hashmi), a Bombay-based engineer. Tarla, at first, is reluctant to… get married as she wants to do something substantial in life. She, however, hasn’t figured out what exactly she wants to do. Tarla has a change of heart when Nalin assures her that the day she figures out her life plans, he’ll provide full support. Both get married. 12 years pass. Tarla and Nalin are now parents to Deepak (Manan Parmar), Sanju (Hridansh Parekh) and Renu (Aashriya Mishra). Tarla feels stifled being a homemaker and a parent. One day, she gets the shock of her life when she, a strict vegetarian, sees her husband savouring a non-veg dish. She decides to cook a veg version of it. Nalin loves it. Her neighbour Jayshree (Bharti Achrekar) asks Tarla to teach cooking to her daughter Kavya (Laxmi Rawat) before she gets married. Kavya uses her newly-learnt cooking skills to persuade her to-be in-laws to let her work after marriage. Soon, word spreads and several parents approach Tarla for cooking tuition. Nalin observes that this could be her calling. Tarla, hence, starts her own cooking classes. The residents of the building, however, object to the overcrowding of students in her flat and order her to stop the classes. This is when she hits the idea of publishing her cookbook. But this is a time when the idea of a cookery book is non-existent. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
