Initially Jhanvi brushes off Siddharth's constant attempts to be with her in order to keep him safe from Ganpat, an encounter with the thugs and Siddharth leads Jhanvi to encourage Siddharth to run but he instead rises to the challenge and fights off all the thugs. While Ganpat goes to threaten Esha and her husband, Siddharth threatens him back viciously as he was one step ahead of him and planned to retaliate (though falsely) by killing Ganpat's family excluding Jhanvi.

Both Siddharth and Jhanavi's keeps meeting with each other hiding and running from Jhanavi's brother and his men, while Siddharth fights off any thugs that follows him and threatens to hurt him or his family, eventually Ganpat decides to use his thugs to beat up a boy who was giving Siddharth a hard time in school thus giving the impression to the principal of the school that Siddharth is a thug and Siddharth get's suspended in return. Then they hit Esha with a van and frame her husband for him to lose his job all at the same time, while Siddharth and Jhanvi agree they should elope and get married before she get's married off.

In the end Ganesh loses all his money, his watch, his clothes, his hope to meet his friend Siddharth, his one kidney.

In the climax, Siddharth hatches a plan to bait Ganpat and his men to the wrong area and marry Jhanvi with her remaining family members who care for her and Siddharth, until Ganpat get's wind of this and track's them down, the newly weds now have to run from a mass amount of thugs. Eventually leading to a final battle where it ends with a one on one fight with Siddharth and Ganpat where Siddharth wins and refuses to deal the death blow allowing him to live.
