Omkara–Gauri "RiKara" love story

Circumstances forced Omkara Singh Oberoi to despise the idea of love and made him distant from the very relationships he once used to cherish, because of traumatic past experiences; be it his father Tej's affair with his secretary Svetlana and his betrayal to Om's mother Jhanvi, or be it his experience of being easily fooled by women who hurt his emotions. Then, Gauri Kumari Sharma enters his life, whom he looks down upon as an opportunistic, greedy and characterless girl while in reality, Gauri is a caring girl who values relationships and is devoted to Lord Shiva. Under unforeseen circumstances, both get married but due to uncleared misunderstandings between them, Omkara develops a deep hatred for Gauri and leaves her right after marriage. Subsequently, Gauri, in Chulbul's disguise enters Omkara's home - the Oberoi Mansion and during her time as a domestic help there, she grows very close to him and also plays an active role in making Omkara's mission to expose Svetlana and to get rid of her from their lives, a success. Meanwhile, Kaali Thakur, the local landowner and don of Bareilly returns to Gauri's life seeking revenge as Gauri had left him at the altar. Kaali Thakur and Svetlana team up and manipulate Tej against Jhanvi and Omkara. However, Gauri (as Chulbul) with help from Rudra and Bua Maa (Dolly Oberoi) saves the day.

After finally getting rid of Svetlana and Kaali, Gauri has to face Omkara's wrath as he gets to know her true identity. Despite Omkara wanting to throw Gauri out of his life, Gauri still stands by his side, sacrificing her self-pride, to protect Omkara's life from Bua Maa (his aunt) whose sweet gestures were all pretend as she seeks vengeance for her son Ratan's accidental death when he was a child and was trying to save Om from drowning. Gauri exposes Bua Maa. Gauri decides to leave Omkara who by now has developed a soft corner for Gauri and learning from his previous mistakes, decides to give their relationship another chance. This marks the end of Dil Boley Oberoi and Omkara and Gauri's story continued in Ishqbaaaz, where they have to face more hurdles due to misunderstandings and mistrust in their relationship before finally realizing their feelings for each other.

Rudra-Saumya "RuMya" love story

Dil Boley Oberoi also marks the continuation of Rudra and Saumya's relationship, initially shown in Ishqbaaaz, where it was shown that Rudra's antics and his arrogance towards Saumya had already put a dent in their relationship. Despite Saumya's repeated efforts to save their drowning relationship, Rudra holds her responsible for the growing tension between his father Tej and elder brother Omkara, and for the other problems of his family, leaving Saumya devastated. Their paths cross again when they are taking the same flight to a mutual friend's engagement. The flight's hijacking leads Saumya and Rudra to work together to save the plane from crashing, but their differences remain, and Saumya realizes that it is high time they ended things. She visits him for the last time, and tells him that they are better off as friends. She then leaves for Australia to pursue higher studies after parting on good terms with Rudra.

Rudra-Bhavya "RuVya" love story

After his break-up with Saumya, Rudra gets romantically involved with Assistant Commissioner of Police Bhavya Pratap Rathore who is introduced in the series as his new love interest. The fierce Bhavya portrays herself as a cute, shy, and nervous girl in front of Rudra to trap him in an undercover mission against an underworld gangster, infamously known as Sultan. She has a personal score to settle with him as he had killed her parents in a bomb blast. After the Sultan-track (the mystery of which has yet not been uncovered) gets scripted out of the series, Rudra lets go of Bhavya's previous lies to him and they mutually enter into a relationship upon realizing their feelings for each other. Their love-hate relationship continued in the main show, Ishqbaaaz.
