Things goes past good one day during Abhi's birthday morning when he asks his tenant Mr. Pakrashi (Kharaj Mukherjee) to pay his dues, he gets slapped in the middle of the road by him. Shattered Abhi goes to his office only to learn that all his files have been messed up by someone and one important file of payment is missing.He sits whole night and works on them only to be tampered by Deepankar again. That night when Abhi was returning with Nandini she gets molested by some goons in metro station, she cries to Abhi for help but Abhi cannot protest.Nandini boards the metro crying leaving Abhi at the metro station.
