An aged man is urged by his friends to find himself a suitable girl to get remarried and he does. But the bride and groom's respective sons oppose their decision.

The film is a fresh look at the concept of old-age romance, which is considered somewhat of a taboo in the society. While the Hindi film industry has seen a similar concept in 'Golmaal 3', it is probably the first time that the Marathi film industry that such a story is being presented.

Shashi (Mohan Joshi), Nanu (Girish Oak) and Col. Nag (Viju Khote) are three old friends and while Shashi's wife is no more, Nanu and Col. Nag are frustrated with their wives. They urge their friend to find a suitable match and have some fun but he ends up falling in love with Sunanda (Varsha Usgaonkar) who happens to be a divorcee. Both of them share details about their lives and decide to get married. Shashi's friends start the wedding preparations but turns out not everyone is happy with the couple's decision. Shashi's son Makarand aka Mak ( Sanjay Narvekar) and Kedar aka KD ( Jitendra Joshi), both losers, do everything in their capacity to stop the marriage but in vain. Their actions don't stop even after their parents' marriage and fed up with this, Shashi and Sunanda decide to separate. This makes Mak and KD realise their mistake and they work towards getting the couple back together.

When a film has a strong cast half the work is done. And this stands true in case of 'Cappuccino'. Mohan Joshi and Varsha Usgaonkar fit the roles of oldies in love. Sanjay and Jitendra are seasoned comedians and they don't disappoint you either. Anuja Gokhale's role of Jitendra's love interest is minimal and Manasi Naik goes over-the-top in portraying dumbness as Alifiya (but the song 'Alifiya Alifiya' has her display her dancing skills and she does that well).

Slapstick comedy has been a trademark of Marathi films but of late there have been some bad films in this genre as well. 'Cappuccino' has its flaws and it gets tedious in the later half but it has a dash of romance, cup of comedy and spoon of drama, making it a mix that you can try once.
