Set in the political and legal world of Delhi, this is the love story of Adarsh (Harshad Arora) and Swadheenta (Tridha Choudhury) whose goals are same, but paths different.

Adarsh Sinha is an honest IAS Officer who belongs to a family of high legal stature. His mother Suhasini Sinha, is a renowned senior advocate, his father Manohar Sinha, and elder brother Jaidev Sinha, bureaucratic officers, and his younger brother Abhay Sinha, an IPS officer. While Jaidev and his wife Jaya have a loveless arranged marriage, Abhay has recently eloped with his immature wife Simmi, whose corrupt father owns Ahuja Constructions.

Swadheenta Ramakrishnan is a strong, aspiring lawyer hailing from Chennai. She moves to Chandni Chowk with her uncle Haider Gilani, aunt Zubeida Gilani, and brother Asad Gilani, and hails from a middle class Tamilian family.

Adarsh spots Swadheenta at a friend's wedding and begins pursuing her. Soon, Swadheenta is assigned a difficult case against Ahuja Constructions, for which she meets Adarsh's mother Suhasini for guidance, and soon wins it, following which she starts working as Suhasini's assistant. Adarsh and Swadheenta meet again when they're assigned to a case together in Faridabad. Gradually, they begin to develop feelings for each other.

When Adarsh decides to propose to Swadheenta, supported by his brothers, he finds out she is already betrothed to her father's favourite Bharatanatyam student, Jeevan. Adarsh takes Bharatanatyam lessons from her father, and finally wins over the family, but is still unsure of Swadheenta's feelings. Suhasini arranges for Adarsh's engagement to Vanshika Bundela, the daughter of a reputed family in the Indian army. Swadheenta finally reaches the venue and confesses her love for Adarsh. Meanwhile, her brother Asad proposes to Radhika, who is engaged to Yash, Vanshika's brother.

With Jaya's help, Adarsh and Swadheenta convince Suhasini to approve of their marriage. Swadheenta promises Suhasini she will never interfere in her relationship with her son.

As their wedding preparations begin, the youngest brothers Asad and Abhay find out about a terrorist scheme plotted by Asad's tenant friends who plan to bomb the wedding location. They chase the terrorists, but Abhay is killed in the encounter, and Asad is mistaken to be a terrorist and shot dead when his friends escape.

While the Sinhas and Gilanis are both devastated, the Gilanis are nationally labelled as terrorists, and Suhasini and Swadheenta find themselves fighting for their families on opposing sides. Swadheenta believes Asad is innocent and Adarsh soon finds out that Manohar and Jaidev's senior minister have covered up the mistake made by the police. He lets Suhasini know of this, and betrayed, she soon changes her side to defend the innocent Gilanis. Swadheenta and Adarsh find Ifteqar Alam, the man behind the operation, while Lt. Yash Bundela finally assassinates him using a suicide bomb, sacrificing himself.

The truth is out in the open and the serial ends on a peaceful note where the Gilanis forgive the Sinhas, Manohar, Jaidev, and Minister Choudhary are brought in under enquiry, and Swadheenta returns to her in-laws.
