Anjali (Shilpa Shetty) is a young woman who hails from an extremely rich and influential family. Her father Mr. Chauhan (Kiran Kumar) is a renowned businessman and has many dreams for his daughter. Anjali is in love with Dev (Sunil Shetty) who is very poor and often cannot even afford to clothe himself properly. Dev loves Anjali and wants to marry her, so he has to meet her father.
When Anjali puts forward to her parents the proposal of marrying Dev, she is rebuked and gets an outright refusal. Because her father does not like Dev for his bad manners and arrogant outlook. Moreover, her parents have chosen for her a wealthy suitor from Delhi; and the boy is very religious minded. Not wanting to hurt her parents, Anjali finally gives in and marries Ram (Akshay Kumar) who her parents believe will be a perfect match for her.
Ram is a man of great ideals, who believes in giving a rightful place to his wife and respects her sensibilities. Despite this, he is unable to win Anjali's love at first and their marriage remains on the edge. However, after seeing the magnanimity of her husband's heart in forgiving and accepting her, she realizes she has fallen in love with him.
Anjali leads a life of bliss and becomes an ideal wife.
But suddenly, at their third wedding anniversary party, Dev returns and reveals his intent of winning Anjali back. Dev is now a wealthy businessman, and Anjali finds herself at a crossroads where she would stand-for her husband or with her former flame/love. Anjali chooses to stand for her husband and has no wish to return to her former flame/lover even though it pains her to know how hurt he is.
When she tells him this, Dev can not stand rejection for a second time and sets out to ruin Ram's life. This goes on for some time, causing turbulence and turmoil in Anjali's life.
In the end, when Anjali tells Dev she is pregnant with Ram's child and begs him to leave her alone, Dev realizes his folly and decides to marry his current friend and business partner Sheetal Varma (Mahima Chaudhary) who is his new companion and secretly loved him for a long time.
