SummaryEdit

Shravan Malhotra, a spoilt and undisciplined civilian teenager, sent to an army school to learn discipline where he meets Suman Tiwari, a fully disciplined and ambitious girl from army family who is the daughter of Devraj's friend. Initially, both despise each other due to their different backgrounds.

Shravan dislikes the discrimination between army and civilian students and the conflicts this often leads to. Suman and Shravan are constantly at odds with each other as they try to prove the other's view wrong. However, despite their constant clashes, Shravan falls in love with Suman. He tries to confess his love to her but hesitates.

Shravan's father has an argument with Suman's father, Vijay, and the two families grow to dislike each other. Several incidents take place, increasing this tension. Meanwhile, Suman learns about Shravan's feelings for her. She mistakes this to be just a teenage crush and decides to ask him to be her best friend instead. Shravan is saddened by this but doesn't let on.

Later, Suman and Shravan practice dance for their school activity. Shravan tries to get intimate but feeling awkward, Suman leaves, and Shravan falls for her even more. Shravan finally confesses his love to Suman. Hearing the confession, she decides not to remain in contact with him, unaware that deep down, she has feelings for him as well.(nagin like villen )

Separately, Anish challenges Shravan by placing Suman's honour at stake. In order to defend her, Shravan takes up the challenge. While the two are competing, Shravan falls from a high wall but Suman risks her own life and saves him. When questioned by Shravan about why she took such a huge risk just to save him, Suman is unable to answer and thus she realises how deeply she has fallen for him. The next day, she confesses her feelings for him. The next day they both go on a date where Suman was kidnapped and later saved by Shravan.

A huge misunderstanding breaks out between both their families due to which Shravan ends up pathetically begging Suman's grandfather to not take the matter further. Suman watches this scenario helplessly and later breaks down as she hates seeing Shravan beg. After getting to know about Suman's break down, Shravan climbs to her balcony to console her where they have a moonlight dinner and then Suman falls asleep on Shravan's shoulder. As the new love birds can't meet each other openly due to their family clash, they find themselves a secret corner and name it as 'Suvan' corner (Shravan + Suman). They meet at Suvan corner regularly to talk, study together, teach each other new things and give presents to each other. Later they permanently tattoo each other's name - Shravan on his chest (Suman) and Suman on her back (SuVan).

After months of secret love, they are finally discovered almost kissing by their families. Enraged, both families decide to send their children away so that they do not meet each other. Shravan and Suman decide to elope so that they can buy time hoping their family will understand their true love for each other and accept their relationship.

Elsewhere, Vijay(Suman's father) gets killed while fighting terrorists. Suman regrets that she had been cold towards her father in their last meeting. Devraj(Shravan's father) is arrested on charges of making a low-quality bulletproof vest and goods for the army and is blamed for Vijay's death. Suman feels guilty that she sided with Shravan against her father. She slaps and humiliates Shravan and calls his father a traitor. Shravan is left heartbroken and they break up.

7 years laterEdit

Hatred has made both Shravan and Suman strangers to each other for the last 7 years. Shravan is now a Captain in the Indian army. He is considered a daredevil by his platoon. Unknown to him, Suman is now a captain doctor in AMC. The once perfectly disciplined, obedient, and cheerful Suman has now evolved into a strict yet rebellious and unruly army doctor who does not bow down to anyone. Both now live in broken families- Suman's mother is no more and in her absence, Suman's once loving aunt now has property related issues with Suman. On the other hand, Shravan is struggling to manage his father's legal complications as well as his uncle who is now a depressed divorcee. Also, Shravan's cousin (Avni) now lives with her mother and avoids Rajendra.

Separately, both of them prepare for the final verdict of the case which was filed against Shravan's father by Suman's family long back. After the leap, both Suman and Shravan first meet because of Suman's brother Veer who is saved by Shravan. Suman is utterly astonished to see that Shravan too has joined army. Also, Shravan gets injured while saving Veer. Much to her chagrin, Suman is assigned to treat his injury during which both constantly pour scorn on each other out of hatred.

At the same time, Kanchan returns from her hostel after an event management course and Suman's lawyer Vikram befriends Shravan who unknowingly helps him impress Suman. Shravan also gets to know that Vikram and Suman are in a relationship. The case verdict is out and Shravan wins the case. Suman is dejected because she feels that she couldn't give justice to Vijay. At Veer's birthday party, both Suman & Shravan confess their heart out and how much they missed each other during their difficult times. The confession turns into an argument as she still feels that the earlier punishment given to Devraj is not enough. The next day, Suman files the case again in high court. Vikram notices the tiff between the two and thus Suman reveals their past relationship to Vikram but she mentioned it as a high school attraction. This irks Shravan and he vows to irritate Suman.

Meanwhile, Shravan sells his house but is unable to find any alternative accommodation as he needs to stay for a few days more due to his recovering injury. Beena is not able to sell the Tiwari house due to opposition from Suman. So, she proposes the idea of Shravan living as a PG in Tiwari house, much to the dismay of Suman & Kanchan. Enters Sophie Mathews, a wedding planner by profession who is now residing in the erstwhile Malhotra house to plan the wedding of her friend and the new owner's daughter, Rupali. Shravan and Sophie click instantly which makes Suman slightly uncomfortable. Turns out, Sophie is the ex-girlfriend of Vikram. Vikram is afraid that Suman might consider him as a loser because Sophie had ditched him earlier and thus he does not turn up for the invited dinner which hurts Suman. This makes Shravan sad and thus he helps Vikram realizing his mistake. Suman gets to know about this which increases her respect for Shravan. They start to have a good care and bonding only to realize that they have been hurt by each other in the past and should not let their inner feelings take over. They decide to show each other that they have 'moved on' by getting closer to their respective partners.

During the wedding, Avni visits Bhopal and is shown to be a smart and matured girl. She hates the Tiwaris and is irked to know that Shravan is staying as a PG in Tiwari house. It takes no time for her to understand that Shravan & Suman both have feelings for each other but are in a state of misunderstanding and denial. Meanwhile, Vikram assumes that Suman is ready to take their relationship forward and thus wants to get engaged with her.
