PlotEdit

Saraswati "Saru" Parthasaarthy (Mawra Hocane) is an extremely traditional, young librarian, who gets rejected by many suitors who find her "old-fashioned" and "unappealing". Her younger sister Kaveri's fiance issues her an ultimatum to marry him within a month or else move on. But her strict father, Jayram Parthasarthy (Manish Choudhary) says that her wedding cannot happen till Saru gets married. Enraged, Kaveri insults her and threatens to elope. Saru begs her not to elope and hurt their father, and promises Kaveri that she will find a husband soon.

In the same apartment, lives Inder Lal Parihaar (Harshvardhan Rane), a handsome ex-convict and his fashionista girlfriend, renowned stylist Ruby Malhotra (Shraddha Das). Jayram views them as a bad influence to the society as he finds them embracing. After a few days, however, they have a breakup. When her parents are out of town, Saru secretly meets Inder and seeks help to get her a makeover appointment from Ruby. She wants to impress her office crush Abhimanyu who holds a degree in IIT. During their conversation, a drunken Ruby barges in and presumes Inder to be cheating on her. In a fit of rage, she throws her wine bottle on Saru, but Inder shields her and gets badly injured. The watchman presumes that they had a physical relationship and alerts all the elders of the society. Unaware, Saru helps Inder tend to his wounds despite his reluctance. Jayram returns early from his trip. He and the elders, find Saru with Inder on his bed, completely misunderstand the situation, while Jayram disowns her.

Saru tells her mother what really happened that night, but asks her not to tell her father, because he has finally consented for Kaveri's wedding. Inder helps her find an apartment and also get her a makeover. With her new makeover, she grabs the attention of Abhimanyu. Meanwhile, Inder falls in love with her, but keeps quiet when Abhimanyu proposes to her, because he wants her to be happy. However, Abhimanyu rejects her on the day of the wedding, because his father does not want a disowned daughter-in-law. Saru is left heartbroken and goes to her honeymoon suite. From there, Saru and Inder make love for her consolation. The next morning, Inder witnesses Saru embracing Abhimanyu and leaves heartbroken. Inder spirals into depression, breaking off all contacts with Saru. When he learns that Saru had actually rejected Abimanyu's request for a second chance, he tracks her down and finds her in a Buddhist monastery, where he professes his love to her. Saru passes out and Inder takes her to the hospital, where he discovers she is suffering from meningioma. He forcibly enters Saru's parents' house and demands them to stop pretending that their daughter is dead. The next day he is arrested for charges pressed by Jayram. Saru gets discharged and goes to the library, where she discovers the secret messages Inder left for her in check-out slips, realizing that he has loved her from the beginning. The two unite and Saru asks Inder to marry her.

That night, Saru tells him that after her death, she desires to be buried under a beautiful flowering tree. Inder meets Jayram and tells him that he is marrying Saru and can even die for her. On their wedding day, Saru's parents arrive and accept their wedding. Saru faints after the wedding and gets hospitalised. Her parents learn about her disease, and Jayram feels heartbroken and guilty. Inder asks his father, Rajinder Lal Parihar (Sudesh Berry), with whom he has a strained relationship, to acquire for him the land under the tree for Saru's burial. Saru dies in Inder's arms. Inder finds Rajinder in the hospital and reconciles with him.

Now a successful lawyer, Inder stands at the tree that marks Saru's grave. He asserts that she must be happy to see him successful and sober. He says that he misses her and expresses a promise of eternal true love.
