Kashish, Mahek, Mouli, Kanan and Charu are five Sinha sisters living in Shimla. Their father, Prof. Sinha, is an idealistic college teacher. One day, Kashish accidentally hits a car belonging to Sujal Garewal, a young businessman. Later, she goes for a job interview to his office. She assumes that she will not get the job, but Sujal hires her. Sujal works for a business enterprise started by his father, Chetan Garewal, in partnership with close friend Lalit Raheja. The Raheja and Garewal families live in the same house. Sujal's best friend is Lalit's son, Piyush. Sujal has a spoilt and arrogant younger brother, Rishi, who flirts with both Mouli and Mahek. Piyush's younger brother, Varun, secretly loves Mahek.
Kashish and Sujal eventually fall in love with each other. She writes a love letter to him and leaves it on his desk. Rishi, who dislikes Kashish, sees the letter and deliberately puts Piyush's name on the letter. When Piyush sees the letter, he thinks that Kashish likes him and begins to feel the same way for her. Lalit and Prof. Sinha decide to get Piyush and Kashish married. Meanwhile, Sujal and Kashish verbally declare their love to each other. Kashish assumes she is about to get engaged to Sujal. On the day of the engagement Kashish is shocked to see Piyush as her fiancé. But she decides to stay quiet to prevent embarrassment and humiliation for her family. However, Sujal sees the letter with Piyush's name on it and thinks that Kashish is cheating on him. He breaks up with her and goes into depression.
Meanwhile, Mahek becomes pregnant as a result of her relationship with Rishi, but he flatly denies that he is responsible. The Sinha family is embarrassed. Sujal, who blindly trusts Rishi, takes his side. Prof. Sinha throws Mahek out of the house because of her relationship and pregnancy with Rishi and Varun takes care of her. But Mahek is unaware of his love for her. Piyush stands by Kashish and her family. Seeing this, Kashish asks Piyush to marry her. On the day of the wedding, Sujal learns how Kashish's letter to him had reached Piyush. He realizes his mistake. He goes to Kashish, apologizes and asks her to return to him. However, Kashish chooses to marry Piyush.
This is the beginning of a rift between Sujal and Kashish, on the one hand, and Sujal and Piyush, on the other. Soon, Rishi grows jealous of Varun and Mahek's relationship and does not want Varun bringing up his child. As time passes by, Kashish begins to love her husband Piyush. Sujal tries to create problems for Kashish and Piyush, but is thwarted each time. No one in the family believes him any more and he is kicked out of the house. He vows to ruin Piyush. He meets his childhood friend Archie, who is infatuated with him. Her father offers to give Sujal his entire business in return for marrying Archie. Sujal agrees, thinking it will be a good way to ruin Piyush professionally and make Kashish jealous. Kashish learns that she is expecting Piyush's child. Eventually, Sujal decides not to interfere in Kashish's and Piyush's lives any more. However, Piyush dies in a car accident. Sujal is shattered by his friend's death and begins to regret his past actions. Kashish goes into depression on Piyush's death.
Akshat Shergill, an old friend of the Sinha family, enters the scene. His entry is followed by the arrival of his mother Reva and elder brother, Swayam. Akshat and Charu soon fall in love with each other. Mahek gives birth to a son. Varun soon confesses his love for her and proposes but she refuses as she doesn't want to be in a relationship again. But later accepts as she finds out he loves her a lot and her child. Sujal arranges their marriage much to Rishi's dismay. As Mahek begins to live in the Raheja/Garewal household, Rishi flirts with her and he also loves their son. He finds out that he has real feelings for Mahek and tries to separate Mahek and Varun but is thwarted each time. Mouli falls in love with Rishi again and leaves her house to live with him. Prof. Sinha cuts ties with her for good. After some time, it is revealed that Piyush's death was not an accident. The car crash was deliberately caused. Kashish begins to suspect Sujal of killing her husband. To punish him, she gets married to him and then gets him arrested. But she discovers that Sujal is innocent. Eventually, Archie turns out to be Piyush's murderer. Archie was jealous of Sujal's love for Kashish and wanted to get rid of her, but Piyush died in the car crash meant for his wife. With the misunderstandings out of the way, the love between Sujal and Kashish is rekindled. It is revealed that Reva is Chetan's first wife and Swayam and Akshat are Sujal's half-brothers. Swayam is an evil person who starts creating problems for Sujal and his family. Mouli finds out about Rishi's flirtatious behavior behind her back and wants to return home but her father refuses. But the sisters forgive her. She begins to live in another house alone. Charu and Akshat break up as she thinks Akshat loves Kashish.
Sujal gets into an altercation with some criminals, falls into a river and is presumed dead. He survives but loses his memory and needs plastic surgery. He gets a new face and is known by the name Tushar. Tushar falls in love with Kashish, not knowing that she is his wife. Kashish also falls in love with Tushar, but suppresses her feelings. Charu is attracted to Tushar. Kashish gets Tushar married to Charu, and then finds out his real identity, but tells him to stay with his new wife. Tushar separates from Charu when he discovers that she had played tricks to get him. He tries to get close to Kashish once again but Charu is pregnant and ill. During a party Charu commits suicide leaving Akshat in despair but it is rumored that she was mysteriously killed. Mouli gets married to Siddharth, the brother-in-law of a rich man named Shabbir Ahluwalia.
Sujal looks forward to a new life with Kashish. But she learns that the secret of her sister's death can be found within the Ahluwalia family. So, Kashish marries Shabbir Ahluwalia in order to find Charu's killer. Disappointed and heart broken, Sujal wants revenge from Kashish. So he pretends to romance Gayatri, Mr. Ahluwalia's daughter, who works with him. Kashish gets jealous; although she knows that Sujal is only seeking revenge from her. Mr. Ahluwalia gets to know about the murderer but is soon killed; Kashish is sent to jail, and Kashish's father is killed. Varun and Mahek get divorced because of mutual differences. Mahek marries Rishi to make sure she gets custody of her son. Soon, Rishi turns over a new leaf and starts caring for Mahek. Kashish learns that Siddharth murdered Charu, Mr. Ahluwalia, and Prof. Sinha.
Kashish goes away with Rishi and Mahek. They start living in a new town. There, they meet Abhishek Chauhan, a navy officer and a look-alike of Piyush (who is later found to be his identical twin). Abhishek is a widower with a young daughter, Sneha. Kashish, Mahek and Rishi begin living happily until Swayam returns. Soon, Rishi dies while saving Sujal. Mahek is depressed. Swayam threatens Kashish that he will frame Sujal for Rishi's murder. To save Sujal, Kashish has to leave him forever. So, she agrees to marry Abhishek. But Abhishek realizes that she is making a sacrifice. He gets Sujal and Kashish married to each other. Swayam's evil plans to frame Sujal and harm the Garewals are failed. He gets killed by Mahek after he stole her child. 5 years later, Kashish and Sujal are seen living happily together. Mouli is also there .
