The story is set in Kannauj, Uttar Pradesh. Runjhun, an orphan, lives with her uncles and aunts and is treated like a servant in the house. However, Runjhun remains cheerful and ready to do any work. Her maternal grandmother tries to shield her after she learns that Runjhun is a bhagonwali (the lucky one) who will bring good luck and prosperity wherever she goes. Runjhun's aunts plot against her and get her married to a local goon Guddu Shukla who agrees to live with them. Runjhun throws Guddu a challenge that she will turn him into a good husband and human being.

Guddu decides to teach Runjhun's evil relatives a lesson but she feels bad for them and tries to help them. This upsets Guddu who tries to convince her that they deserve it. Guddu and Runjhun's relationship worsens when his ex-girlfriend, Nilu, enters their lives. She has Runjhun abducted. She forces Guddu to marry her if he wants to know where Runjhun is being held. Guddu marries Nilu though Runjhun escapes but before she can stop the wedding, she is shot by Jhabbu. When Nilu takes Guddu to where Runjhun was held, she is killed by the kidnapper who is then arrested.

Guddu finally finds Runjhun who has lost her memory. Her relatives try to deceive her. She becomes obsessed with the idea of getting a child and asks Guddu to marry her. Not wanting to take advantage of her memory loss, he initially refuses but finally agrees. As they marry, Runjhun begins to remember.
