The murder can be expected from Purshottam because his anger can turn everything worst. Years ago, Purshottam, his brother Vikram, and their friend as well as the neighbor, Krishan were growing in a small, crudely built shack.
On the other side of the town, Dhanraj was leading an elegant life. Purshottam’s father worked in milk dairy as a factory runner whereas; Dhanraj’s father was running a successful electricity business. He was the only person running that business in the town. Though there was a difference in the status; the two brothers were close to each other. Purshottam works in his uncle’s office as an employee. Dhanraj and his father would often insult Purshottam. As days passed, Purshottam learned the marketing strategy and distribution channel of the business and started his own business. This affected Dhanraj’s business leading to bankruptcy. This made Dhanraj and his family move out of the place.

Ten years ago, Madhav manipulated Purshottam which led him to commit murder. Purshottam was drunk when he committed this crime. At the time of Purshottam’s release, Madhav will sow the seed into his mind that Aparna and Vikram are in a relationship. When he returns home, he will compromise himself, and believes Madhav, seeing Aparna and Vikram. He will speak about this with Krishan and refuses to listen to him.
Also, he decides not to return home and takes the promise from Krishan as to not to inform anyone about this at home. Madhav created this misunderstanding as he feared that Ambika (Gayatri’s daughter) would not get enough wealth from her father as it would go to his legitimate daughters. Purshottam leaves everyone and disappears. The family searches for him everywhere. They get his personal belongings and assume that he is dead. Aparna never believes it.
