Deepak Rai (Sanjay Kapoor) comes across a purse that contains educational certificates belonging to a woman named Aarti (Priya Gill). He finds out that this lady lives in Nainital and mails her stuff back to her, this starts an enduring correspondence through letters.

Even though the couple has never seen each other, there is a mutual attraction. Aarti's sister and brother-in-law Nirmal (Tej Sapru) are encouraging to a certain extent. While Nirmal suggests she marry a Mr. Prem (Salman Khan), a renowned young businessman in his neighborhood and business-partner, Aarti's older sis wants Aarti to choose her own life partner.

One day, Aarti starts out on her journey to locate and meet Deepak without informing him that she is on her way. He is currently living in Delhi as he has a job contract with his boss Neha there temporarily. Not helping matters is Neha (Sushmita Sen), who is Deepak's boss and romantically inclined to him too, but Deepak is not. His heart pines for Aarti. Due to this reason, he resigns and desperate to make ends meets, starts to drive an auto rickshaw at the behest of Pritam (Jackie Shroff) whom he befriended when he respected him as a human when he first arrived in Delhi and Pritam helped him when he did not have a place of his own.

During the correspondence, a few months back, Aarti had gifted Deepak a woolen sweater with an image of a "lighted diya" knitted over it. When Aarti arrives at Delhi, she looks for Deepak's address and workplace hoping she can meet him unaware and surprise him with her presence and see what he is really like. She fails to find Deepak and decides to go back because a week had passed and time was running out. She might not get a chance to come and meet him again. Sadly, she reaches the train station to return home.

Unbeknownst, when Aarti first arrived in Delhi and her rickshaw broke down, she had hired Deepak's auto and had been traveling with him the whole day. While Deepak drops her at the station, someone mistakenly spills coffee over Deepak's shirt. Deepak removes his shirt revealing the woolen sweater beneath. Aarti recognizes it, calls out his name and both recognize each other and how they had been looking for each other the whole time.

The movie ends with Aarti and Deepak embracing each other while Pritam and Jency (Jaya Bhattacharya) look at them in joy.
