The film starts off with everybody congratulating lawyer Inder Lal Parihaar (Harshvardhan Rane) after he wins a case. Inder goes home and carries a bottle of liquor and stands in front of a large cherry blossom tree in his backyard that has a date and name carved into it. It was his wife, which leads to a series of flashbacks from Inder’s past.
Saraswati “Saru” Parthasaarthy (Mawra Hocane), a young librarian who everyone thinks is ugly, due to her traditional looks, keeps away any suitable husband. Her beautiful younger sister Kaveri wants to get married, but her father will not allow her to marry before Saru does. This leads into a conflict between the two sisters as Kaveri’s suitor proposes an ultimatum, stating that he will only give her one-month to marry him otherwise he will move on, adding pressure on Saru to find a husband quickly. The Parthasaarthy family is a respectful, patriarchal household who lives in a building called the ‘Society’ where the elders, including Saru’s father, monitor the activities that happen in the building while prohibiting any acts of vulgarity. One day, Saru’s father, Jayram (Manish Choudhary) and Saru run into Inder, her neighbor and the son of a famous, wealthy lawyer, in the hallway with his girlfriend Ruby Malhotra (Shraddha Das), a renowned stylist. Jayram, who is very strict, is enraged to see the pair embracing each other shamelessly. As Saru hurries past them, Inder is starstruck by her simplicity and beauty.
