In 1970, "Freddie" Farrokh Bulsara, an Indian-British Parsi is working his way through art college in London. After seeing the band Smile play at a pub, Freddie notices an attractive young woman (Mary Austin) in the hallway. She tells him how to find the band and Freddie learns she works at Biba, a posh London boutique. Outside, he compliments drummer, Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) and guitarist, Brian May (Gwilym Lee) on their performance. Learning that their lead singer, Tim Staffell (Jack Roth) just quit, Freddie offers himself as a replacement and demonstrates his vocal ability.
Freddie sees Mary at Biba, and she helps him choose stylish clothes. They become a couple and later move in together
With Freddie as lead singer, and bassist John Deacon (Joseph Mazzello), the band play pub gigs across Britain. Freddie urges the band to think bigger and record an album. After selling their van, they book time late at night in a studio to produce their debut album. An A&R rep from EMI watches them record. He asks engineer Roy Thomas Baker (Tim Plester) for demos.
Freddie changes the band's name to Queen and designs their logo. He also changes his name to Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek). The band sign with John Reid (Aidan Gillen), Elton John's manager, and land a contract with EMI Records. Paul Prenter (Allen Leech) manages Queen's daily schedule. An appearance on Top of the Pops gives Queen a hit record, "Killer Queen". Mary and Freddie become engaged.
The album hits the charts in America, and, during the band's U.S. tour, Freddie begins questioning his sexuality.
In 1975, Queen record their fourth album, A Night at the Opera, but leave EMI when executive Ray Foster (Mike Myers) refuses to release the six-minute song "Bohemian Rhapsody" as the album's lead single. Freddie has DJ Kenny Everett (Dickie Beau) debut the song on the radio. Despite mixed reviews, "Bohemian Rhapsody" becomes a smash hit. Following a world tour, Freddie begins an affair with Paul.
