One day, Sunil meets with an accident, and Sonia takes him to the hospital. There, he meets Chandni, a nurse who takes care of him.

As Sunil recuperates, Chandni and he spend more time together, eventually falling in love.

However, fate has other plans, and circumstances bring Sunil and Chandni together once again.
