Plot

Karam Apnaa Apnaa is the story of Gauri, a charming and innocent middle-class Bengali girl. Her father's best friend and wealthy businessman Mahen Kapoor and his wife Nikhila dote on Gauri who is motherless. Mahen finds a good match for Gauri in the form of Shashank. However, on the day of her wedding, Gauri is told that Shashank has refused to marry her and the Kapoors have forced Shiv to stand in as the bridegroom. She runs away from the venue but is convinced by an understanding stranger, Anupam, to face her problem. She returns and Shiv is forced to marry her. Over time, Gauri falls in love with Shiv without expecting anything in return and Shiv becomes friendly to her.

After the marriage, Gauri is in a series of mishaps. It is revealed that Shiv's horoscope (kundali) has a major flaw (dosh) according to which his first wife will die soon. Nikhila was aware of this and had made Shiv marry Gauri. Shiv has been in love with his childhood friend Ipshita and wanted to save her from the effects of his horoscope. Gauri refuses to abandon Shiv. She meets with an accident but survives. Meanwhile, Ipshita gets engaged to Anupam as a camouflage. However, after Gauri's accident, Shiv consummates their marriage and refuses to leave Gauri who is now pregnant.

5 Years later

Shiv and Gauri are the proud parents of twin sons - Om and Priam and a daughter named Shanti. With Gauri busy with the kids, Shiv sometimes misses Ipshita who is now a famous writer and has separated from Anupam. Nikhila wants Ipshita back in Shiv's life. Shiv's long-lost identical twin brother, Samar, is found. Nikhila, Ipshita and Mahen's sister Maya join hands against Gauri. Ipshita takes advantage of Shiv's emotional vulnerability and has a one-night stand with him. Gauri exposes Nikhila's evil plans. Nikhila is thrown out of the Kapoor family. Nikhila, Ipshita and Maya, with the help of doctors, fake a report that Gauri is suffering from a brain tumor. Gauri learns about Shiv's one-night stand, after which Ipshita is apparently pregnant. Expecting an early death for herself, Gauri forces Shiv to marry Ipshita. However, Gauri realizes that she has been tricked and, with Samar's help, exposes Ipshita's true colours. Shiv throws Ipshita out of the house.

Meanwhile, Nikhila has a change of heart and re-enters the Kapoor family. Mahen's long-lost nephews Moksh and Asim enter the Kapoor mansion, accompanied by Shashank, their business associate. One night, Shiv is brutally murdered by Moksh, Asim and Shashank. After his death, they harass the Kapoors. Samar encounters Shiv's ghost which tells him about Shiv's murder. Samar promises to take revenge. Samar and Gauri get Moksh and Asim convicted for Shiv's murder, but Shashank escapes. Shiv's ghost also disappears after this. The Kapoors start pressuring Samar to marry Gauri. However, Samar and Gauri reject the idea. In an unexpected turn of events, Nikhila is murdered. Samar and Gauri suspect each other. Gauri runs away and is assumed to be dead.

Few years later

Samar has turned into a cold-hearted business tycoon, and Gauri, who has lost her memory, is living in another town as Shivangi. Samar hates Gauri whom he believes to be his mother's killer. Anupam is now paralyzed, as Ipshita had tried to kill him to be with Shiv. His sister Nisha wants to take revenge against the Kapoors. She traps Samar into getting engaged to her. Gauri regains her memory and becomes aware of Nisha's true intentions. On Samar's wedding day, Gauri replaces Nisha as the veiled bride. Samar is furious when he learns that he has been tricked into marrying Gauri. They constantly fight.

Eventually, it is revealed that Nikhila's killer was Maya. Samar and Gauri work out their differences and their love blossoms. Gauri's old friend Prateek, a doctor, diagnoses that Samar is suffering from a tumour. Prateek treats Samar and cures the tumour.

Samar's cousins, Vivaan and Dhruv, want to take over the wealth of the Kapoor family. Gauri and Samar are forced to migrate to Kolkata with their three children. They lead a modest life until a spoilt rich girl named Kamya falls in love with Samar. Kamya and her mother poison Samar's mind and make him believe that Gauri is having an affair. Gauri is pregnant with Samar's baby but he begins to suspect that her supposed lover has fathered the child. Gauri decides to separate from Samar but Kamya's truth is exposed. Gauri gives birth to a baby girl. After some time, Samar and Gauri move to London in order to establish their business. Dhruv and Vivaan are fighting each other for the Kapoor inheritance. At last, Samar and Gauri return to India and solve the problem. The Kapoor family is re-united.
