Amala is a young and beautiful town girl, who lives in a small town of Dharamshala. She lost her parents at an early age, thus she lives with her elder brother Raghu and his wife Mandkini. She is engaged to her childhood friend Dev and is waiting to get married. She dreams of having her own house, where she can live her life according to her will.
Abeer is a well mannered guy who lives with his adoptive mother Karuna, who is a healer of herbal medicines. One night, Amala on the way to see off her fiance who is departing for a working trip was caught and gang-raped by Abeer's rich friends Suveer, Evan and Viraj under the influence of drugs & alcohol. While Abeer is unaware of the reality, he finds himself guilty for the incident.
Abeer is forced to marry Amala by the powerful family of his rich friends. Amala and Abeer move to Mumbai, after marriage, to start a new life. Raghu and Mandakini, along with their kid Mannu, reach Mumbai to stay with Amala and Abeer. They are later joined by Abeer's adoptive mother, Karuna. Dev too reaches Mumbai with a motive to seek answers to his questions from Amala. He calls Abeer and threatens to kill him as he snatched away his love from him. Amala falls ill and Mando is suspicious if she is pregnant. Amala performs the test at home, and it comes out to be positive. This comes as a shock to them with Amala in a deep pain, and Abeer tensed, not knowing what to do. Karuna takes Amala to the hospital to get the test done again. The reports come out negative, and it is revealed that Amala is not pregnant, which comes as a relief to everyone. Fearing that Dev might turn into a criminal by taking his vengeance from Amala's culprits, Amala asks Abeer to leave her forever as she doesn't want him to destroy Dev's life, like he destroyed her life. Abeer wants to leave Amala and move abroad, for her own good, but at the same time his increasing concern and love for Amala is shown. A guilt-stricken Viraj tells Abeer the truth of his innocence, and him not being a rapist like them, on realizing how he betrayed his own friend due to his selfishness. Abeer gets heartbroken by the truth, and later, decides to tell this to Amala. After several unrewarding attempts to express his innocence to Amala, Abeer gets successful in telling her this truth, but Amala ends up blaming him more. She tells how him and his friends have broken her beyond repair. She says that she hates herself and her life, and also, she has nothing but hatred for him too. Mando & Karuna leave for Dharamshala. Abeer accompanies Amala for her nephew's school admission. He convinces the principal to give the child a seat in the school. On their way back, Dev sees Amala but does not approach her. Abeer is slowly falling in love with Amala despite her hatred for him. The next day Raghu is lost in the shopping mall and Abeer goes looking for him. Meanwhile Evan and Viraj are out of jail. Viraj is guilt stricken and resorts to drinking to forget his crimes. Surveer & Mahi's wedding is postponed by Manvendar.
