The dashing John Abraham plays Rajat whose love is silent and he expresses all his pent up emotions through his songs. He loses the girl he loves, but is more concerned about her happiness than his own heartbreak.
Balraj Kapoor (Bachchan) is a rich businessman with progressive modern outlook towards life. For him, family, culture and values are of utmost importance. Shobhna (Hema), his wife is more than just his better half.
Together, they dote their only child Avinash (Salman). For Balraj, Avinash is more of a friend than just his son. After spending many years abroad for studies, Avinash returns home to his parents. Their lives light up and there is happiness everywhere.

He is settled in rural Punjab with his family and his widowed sister-in-law objects to Balraj's plans.
Will Balraj be able to fulfill his plan? Will he be successful in this test of love? Will he prove to be a father ('Babul') rather than being a father-in-law? What questions will be raised by his actions and how the society will react to it forms the story that 'Babul' is all about.
