Vaibhavi Singh (Snehal Pandey) is a spirited Teenager who comes back to her hometown Jabalpur to pursue her mission. Her life has two goals - one is to become an IAS officer and secondly to clear her father's name Anirudh Singh Chauhan(Rahul OM Tiwari) who was labelled as a Traitor.

Unable to take the insult and pressure he commits suicide in Jail. His wife and a much younger Vaibhavi are subjected to torture and shame by Jabalpur people. The Mother-Daughter duo are forced to leave the city. It is revealed that Anirudh was framed by his own best friends who were corrupted and were involved in Illegal activities.

Having witnessed atrocities by people at an early age, Vaibhavi has developed anger, hate and disgust for the society and turns out to be an angry young woman. Vaibhavi decides to take admission into the same college Harivansh Rai College where her father graduated. She finds an empty frame in the wall of fame board which once belonged to her father.

On the first day of her college, Vaibhavi locks horns with Natahsa (Saanvi Talwar) a daughter of a well known Surgeon in Jabalpur and Ada Siddiqui (Neha Luthra) the daughter of the well known Industrialist. Natasha is bold, spirited and an open minded girl and Ada displays an attitude of an arrogant girl but she is soft from Inside.

He befriends her to solve her problems at various occasions and ultimately falls for her. He displays his feelings and affection for her at many levels but Vaibhavi is never sure whether she likes him or not. She remains confused about her feelings towards Shaurya but acknowledges him as his good friend. Kabir Scindia (Randeep Rai) the younger brother of Shaurya is the complete opposite of him. He is a spoilt brat who doesn't believe in love and relationships. He is a Casanova who hooks up with various women until Natasha comes in his life and changes the picture. She brings a change in his life. Also she comes to know that Kabir has a past that brought a bitter change in his personality but Natasha changes him for good. Kabir is also friends with Ada, Vaibhavi and Samar and shares a bitter sweet bond with his brother Shaurya.
Meanwhile, Samar Khan (Aakash Ahuja) is the friend of Junaid(Kapil Verma) who is the fiancée of Ada and is about to marry her soon. As luck would have it, Samar studies in the same college where Ada does. Junaid lives in Karachi, Pakistan and he has asked Samar to keep an eye on Ada and ultimately takes care of her. Samar and Ada starts to develop feelings for her as Samar is genuinely a good hearted guy while Junaid is often rude and crude towards Ada. All three love stories blossom but they do not reach a conclusion.
