Three sisters Shamoli, Kanchan and Kakoon arrive in Mumbai from their village in search of livelihood. At first, they have to face terrible hardship in the new city. But soon they find help from Veeru, the chauffeur and protege of a powerful and wealthy lawyer named Kunal Mehra, who has never faced defeat in a single case. Veeru gets jobs for Kanchan and Shamoli as maids in Kunal's home. Shamoli impresses Kunal with her presence of mind, and once saves him from a very difficult situation. The middle-aged Kunal, a confirmed bachelor for years, though at first avoids Shamoli because of her status, later feels attracted and proposes to her, leaving Shamoli in confusion. He does not know that she and Veeru love each other. Unknown to them all, Kanchan also silently loves Veeru.
Kakoon, the little sister, has a major accident and needs expensive treatment at once. Veeru tries his best to help and even takes loans, but that is still insufficient. Kunal has meanwhile given Shamoli a proposal to either marry him or leave. Being rich, only Kunal is in a position to help, so Shamoli having no other alternative quickly decides to accept his proposal and marry him. This angers Veeru and Kanchan, who believe Shamoli has lost her head over Kunal's wealth. Rejected by her loved ones, Shamoli struggles to be accepted in her husband's elite social circle, where she is often tormented and humiliated by Karishma, the wife of Kunal's brother. She gradually falls in love with Kunal.
Shamoli's resolve is tested further when Veeru comes to live in Kunal's house, following a surprise revelation that the two men are long-lost brothers. Then, Kunal learns the truth that Shamoli had married him only to save her little sister's life and that she used to love Veeru. He becomes upset and in anger, drives both Shamoli and Veeru out of his house. But he later feels regret and decides to set her free from their marriage, send her back to Veeru and leave the city. However, Shamoli realizes that she now loves Kunal and not Veeru, so she chooses to stay with her husband. Kanchan and Shamoli reconcile with each other. Veeru accepts the fact that Shamoli is now Kunal's wife and despite Kunal's insistence to stay with them, decides to stay away from them until he achieves his dream of becoming a lawyer. In the end, Veeru accomplishes his goal and gets married to Kanchan, giving recognition to her love for Veeru. He then pays a visit to his brother's house, and the show ends in a happy note with both the brothers and the sisters united.
