Dr. Khalid (Noor Hassan) is a psychiatrist who has just completed his degree from America and is returning to Pakistan in order to be in his family and to establish a clinic there, When he reaches Pakistan, he decides to travel to his city in a train instead of a plane so that he can see his country properly, for he had been away for so long. In the train, he comes across a bubbly, upbeat and cheerful girl called Gulrukh (Hira Salman) who keeps Dr. Khalid entertained with her funny yet witty jokes. She tells him that his clinic is not going to give him good business since in Pakistan, no one wants to be called a psychic by going to a psychiatric clinic for help. Khalid tells her that he is engaged to his cousin Zubia. Much to Khalid's surprise, Gulrukh guesses a lot about Zubia, auch as the fact that she must be a quiet girl who has not studied after her intermediate. Gulrukh tells him that Zubia is not the girl Khalid should marry and he should instead marry someone like herself (Gulrukh). This entertains Khalid. Gulrukh insists that Khalid should take her to his home so that she can show him why she is the perfect match for him, and after a little reluctance, Khalid agrees . They reach Khalid's home and Khalid is greeted warmly by the family members. However, Zubia and her mother are uncomfortable with Gulrukh's presence, though Khalid's mother welcomes her as Khalid's guest. Gulrukh remarks that Zubia is exactly like she imagined her. Meanwhile, an old man (Mehmood Aslam) and a boy (Asim Azhar) are seen seated at a police station. The old man is reporting that his daughter has disappeared and he blames the boy for his daughter's disappearance. This is shown in a comic way instead of showing it as a serious scene. The boy denies having been involved in the disppappearance of the girl. The girl's father gives her picture to the police and the girl turns out to be Gulrukh. Days pass and Zubia gets uncomfortable due to Gulrukh's closeness with Khalid.
