The film starts off with everybody congratulating lawyer Inder Lal Parihar (Harshvardhan Rane) after he wins a case. Inder goes home and stands in front of a large tree in his backyard that has a date and name carved into it, which leads to a series of flashbacks from Inder's past.
Saraswati "Saru" Parthsarthy (Mawra Hocane) is a young librarian whose simple appearance keeps away any suitable husband while her younger sister Kaveri is a beautiful girl who is concerned about her wedding with her fiancéé, as she can't get married before Saru does, due to their parents' will. After another rejection, Saru decides to get a makeover and seeks help from Inder, her neighbor and the son of a famous and wealthy lawyer, as he is dating a renowned stylist. His girlfriend presumes that Inder is cheating on her and throws a glass bottle at him. Saru and Inder pass the night out in order to get him help but when Saru's father sees her with Inder, he misunderstands and disowns her.
This brings Inder and Saru together; he helps her find an apartment and also helps her get a makeover. He falls in love with her in the process but keeps quiet when Abhimanyu, Saru's crush, proposes marriage to her after her transformation. However, Abhimanyu stands her up on the day of the marriage because his father does not want a daughter-in-law that has been disowned. Heartbroken, Saru travels to her honeymoon suite and asks Inder to make love to her for consolation, to which he agrees. The next morning however, he witnesses her embracing Abhimanyu and leaves.
Heartbroken, Inder spirals into depression, breaking off contact with Saru, as he assumes she has gotten back with Abhimanyu. When he learns however that Saru had actually left him, rejecting Abimanyu's request for a second chance, he tracks down her phone and finds her in a Buddhist monastery, where he professes his love to her. Saru passes out and Inder takes her to the hospital, where he discovers she has a brain tumor that is untreatable. He forcibly enters Saru's parents' house and demands that they stop pretending their daughter is dead. The next day he is arrested for charges pressed by her father. Saru gets discharged and goes to the library, where she discovers the secret messages Inder left for her in check-out slips, realizing that he has liked her from the beginning. The two unite and Saru asks him to marry her.
That night, Saru tells him that after her death, she desires to be buried under a tree. On their wedding day, Saru's parents arrive, having realized their mistake. Saru faints after the wedding; the hospital informs her family that she will die. Inder asks his father, with whom he has a strained relationship, to acquire for him the land under the tree for Saru's burial. Saru dies in his arms; Inder finds his father in the hospital, reconciling with him.
Now a successful lawyer, Inder stands at the tree that marks Saru's grave. He asserts that she must be happy to see him successful and sober: he has left drinking. He says that he misses her and expresses a promise of eternal love.
