Plot summary[edit]Edit

Saraswatichandra Vyas a.k.a Saras (Gautam Rode) lives in Dubai and is not interested in getting married, but Kumud Sundari Desai (Jennifer Winget) has been chosen to be his wife by his father, Lakshminandan Vyas. The show's story revolves around their relationship. After falling in love with each other, right before they were about to get married, Saras finds out the reality of the death of his mother and gets furious. He calls Kumud and cancels the marriage because he was no longer the rich man she was supposed to get married since he blamed his father for his mother's suicide and left his house. Kumud, who was mad about the humiliating situation, gets married to Pramad Dhan Dharmadhikari (Anshul Trivedi) because her father asked her too, without knowing him. Pramad turns out to be an extreme alcoholic and tries to threaten Kumud because he was forced to marry her by his father, Buddhi Dhan Dharmadhikari (Sai Ballal). Alak Nandini, Kumud's sister-in-law gets Saras from the road when he was injured because the local police officer took his revenge on him and thus Saras was not able to stop Kumud from getting married to someone she doesn't love at all. When Alak brings Saras to her house, he figures out that he is in the house of Kumud's in laws. To handle the situation, Saras renames himself Naveenchandra. The story then revolves around Kumud trying to reform Pramad's alcoholic ways, and Saras wanting to help her as he believes it is all his fault. Later, they find out that Pramad is in a sexual relationship with the housemaid, Kalika. Also, they come to know that Kalika is the core reason of the mess Pramad was making throughout his life. Kumud's sister Kusum comes to Kumud's house and gets to know that Saras is also there.At first, she is not convinced about Saraswatichandra's intentions and thinks that he is here to win her back but as time passes she believes him. Saras and Kumud try to outsmart Kalika throughout the series as she is cunning and wants to marry Pramad herself. Pramad is violent and abusive towards Kumud which puts her in a challenging predicament. The story goes on as Saras wanting to help Kumud but doesn't accept because of his previous behavior. Afterwards, Kumud forgives him when Saras tells her everything which had happened with Saras to Kumud. Kumud goes to her house for some rasam(ritual) with Pramad. At night, Pramad comes home drunk thus stunning the whole family and asks Kumud about Saraswatichandra. Kumud is shocked to realize that Pramad knew about Saraswatichandra. Pramad tells that inspector Umesh Solankee told him about it. AKalika becomes suspicious of the fact that something is going on between Naveen and Kumud and starts searching for clues. On the festival of Teej she comes across the letters and earrings of Kumud in Naveen's cupboard and informs Pramad about the same. He becomes furious and drags Kumud to the living room and insults her in front of the whole family. Everyone is shocked to hear this but Kusum saves the day by taking the blame on herself that she and Naveen like each other and everything in that box belongs to her. Everything is back to normal in the house. One day Kumud's family members give a surprise visit and are shocked to see Saraswatichandra there. Dugba leaves the house by making some excuse and Saras follows her fearing that she will give her life like her mother. He tells her about his intentions and that he means well for Kumud and will leave the house when he is convinced that Kumud is free from danger. Back at the house, Kumud, Dugba and Saras are shown discussing about the consequences of their actions and Kalika overhears that Naveen is Saraswatichandra only. She runs off to inform Pramad but accidentally reveals everything to Naveen. He threatens her by saying that he will reveal about the things she has been stealing from the house if she tells anyone about his true identity. Kumud tries to marry her off and Kalki has no other option but to say yes. She panicks and runs away from the house.
