Do Hanson Ka Joda is the story of Preeti, a young dreamy girl who wants to get married to a Bollywood "Prince Charming". However, in a turn of events, she marries Suryakamal, an ordinary middle class man. Her bubbly cousin Sumi, on the other hand, marries a hunk Rishi. Both the girls find their marriage to be not what it seems as Preeti realises what a loving husband Suryakamal is, while Sumi is regularly assaulted by her violent husband Rishi.
After Preeti and Suryakamal pay a visit to his aunt and begin their romantic journey together, both the girls have to urgently return to their maternal house as Preeti's father leaves the family due to Chachi ji's cunning plans. Radhika urges Veenu to see Chachi ji's reality, but in turn is insulted and has to leave herself. As Preeti's mother passes away, Suryakamal promises her he will unite the family.
Meanwhile, Suryakamal's sister Sajni had an earlier pending operation, which now becomes successful. Preeti and Suryakamal soon find out about Rishi and get him arrested. Sumi now begins to live with them.
Preeti finds an opportunity to enter into a dance competition with Pushkar, and after much reluctance, Suryakamal ends up dancing with her in the finale and they win the competition. Sajni is about to marry Pushkar, when Preeti and Suryakamal find his violent truth out and stop the marriage.
Further, the plot develops into Suryakamal's selfish family where a property dispute emerges as Preeti's brother-in-law Neeraj is charged by Ritu for domestic violence. He reveals that the property in fact belongs to Preeti, due to which they - mainly Ammaji, and Ritu - plot against Preeti. Suryakamal finds this out, but they murder him and hide his body so no one can know the truth.
Preeti is devastated on his disappearance and tortured by her in-laws, but soon runs into a con man who is a lookalike of Suryakamal - Chandar. He is mistaken for Suryakamal, and later finds out his lookalike's truth, revealing that Suryakamal has in fact died. Ritu and Ammaji discover this and frames Chandar for Suryakamal's murder, but it is proved otherwise. During the investigation, Preeti's dead body is found as part of a conspiracy to get her property, but fail as their plans are foiled and the truth is unveiled.
The end shows Preeti and Suryakamal's ashes being submerged together.
