Biriyaani revolves around Khadeeja, a married Muslim woman who is confined within the four walls of an oppressive society. She silently endures the oppression without a single complaint.

When her brother goes missing and is suspected of being a terrorist, Khadeeja and her mother leave town and attempt to find solace in a dargah. But soon they learn of her brother’s death. When Khadeeja’s mother too passes away, circumstances force her into prostitution. Eventually, she decides to go back to her hometown and fulfil her mother’s last wishes.
