Both girls marry their respective partners. ,Shobhas husband travels away and returns with the need for a new wife. Prem falls for ASHA not knowing that he left her at the wedding altar and that she is his wife (he refused to look at her face). Lies, treachery, deception and intrigue follow the tale as Asha strives to clear her father's name of a crime he didn't commit and Prem falls for Asha, not knowing that the girl he cruelly rejected during his brash younger days is the same girl he is falling for now.
