Ravi and Paul, two friends from Leicester, end up attending a gay party in the small Indian town of Shimoga, upon an invitation of Ravi's Parsee email-pal Jeh from Mumbai. A genteel dreamer Ravi instantly falls in love with Mani - a dark and handsome local working man.
Ravi and Paul also meet an older male couple, Murthy and Anna, now in their sixties. Murthy has lived in the UK to avoid marriage. When he returns to attend his mother's funeral, his lover Anna (a married man by then) convinces him to stay back. After his wife's death, Anna decides to join Murthy and they run a hotel. Both Ravi and Paul are surprised to meet the older same-sex couple.
Although Ravi can't let go of his newfound love, Mani cannot overcome the vast gap that exists between them. Mani is under constant pressure to get married to a woman. When Ravi asks Mani to accompany him to the UK, Mani shows very little willingness. Ravi seeks Murthy and Anna's help, but the couple hide behind words of wisdom and express inability to bring Ravi and Mani together. Tension brews between Ravi and Paul due to sexually charged Mani and the situation highlights some nasty cracks in their friendship. Mani throws in a surprise at the farewell meeting that Ravi's asked for.
Interspersed with flashes of semi-surreal situations - presented through exciting dream sequences - Yours Emotionally! unfolds a brightly painted canvas that defies stereotypes and explores contrasting values within Indian and Western gay sub-cultures.
