Two women from different backgrounds, religions, and areas marry the men they love. Meera is a Hindu, living in a traditional household, whilst Zeenat is a more independent-minded Muslim woman. Both their husbands go to work in Saudi Arabia, but whilst living and working there tragedy strikes when Zeenat's husband Aamir accidentally pushes Meera's husband Shankar out of a window during a scuffle. He is charged with murder, and can only be saved from execution if the widow of the murdered man pardons him. Zeenat goes in search across the country to find Meera, and, saving the latter from mistreatment by her father-in-law, the two become friends.
