Shravan and Suman are separated when Shravan leaves for London to practice law after his parents are divorced. Shravan returns to India after 10 years in London. Suman eagerly awaits his return only to find that he is not the same boy that she was best friends with. Suman apologizes to Shravan for leaving him when he needed her 10 years ago, but Shravan brushes it off. He vows to get revenge on her for what she did to him. He plans a school reunion party where he insults Suman, similar to what happened to him so long ago. Afterwards, Suman and Shravan part ways until Suman’s house gets in trouble.
