The story of this show revolved around two such families of different background and caste who resided in the western part of Uttar Pradesh. The main protagonists of this show Abhay and Surbhi members of these two families fell in love with each other and got married secretly.
Due to the fear of incurring the wrath of their respective families, as they hailed from different caste and family backgrounds, they eloped. But, soon, both the families found them and were about to kill them. However, at this crucial moment, Abhay revealed to both the families that Surbhi is expecting their child. Hearing this, both the families in hope that Surbhi might bear a son to the “Khandaan” forgave both of them and accepted them but Abhay’s family members continued their hostile attitude towards Surbhi. How Abhay and Surbhi sustain their love and relationship amidst all the obstacles, hardships and hurdles to safeguard their unborn child constituted the remaining plot of the show.
The show was heavily criticised for its sensitive content and brutal beating and violent fighting sequences that featured the female protagonist. The TV series also failed to achieve popularity as expected from the viewers. The show was also under the vigilance of Information and Broadcast Ministry of the Government of India for portraying such sensitive and controversial issues.
