'I'm the Very Beautiful!' follows a man-woman relationship over six years. The woman is an 'international' bar singer by profession who knows her way around the male world; and the man, a filmmaker, and also the director of this film. Ranu's predicament as a poor, exploited bar singer 'inspires' the filmmaker to make a film. In a life full of men and stories, the director being just one among many, the relationship grows with the film as the two accept each other despite moral archetypes. The film ultimately turns out to be a sign of their trust and respect for each other as human beings.
