Hindi-speaking girl Sapna lives a wealthy lifestyle in Dona Paula, near Panaji, along with her Professor dad, Kundanlal, and mom. Their immediate neighbours: Tamil-speaking vegetarian tenants, V. Sivaramakrishan, his wife, Vandana and son, Vasudevan, detest Kundanlals' meat-eating habits. Both families are aghast with surprise and anger when they find out that Sapna and Vasudevan are in love. Strong opposition only strengthens their romance, forcing the families to compel the couple to stay away for a year. Both agree, and Vasudevan leaves for Hyderabad, for his job. He befriends a widow, Sandhya, and learns how to dance as well as read and write Hindi, while his dad arranges his marriage with Tamil-speaking Tulsi. Meanwhile, Vasudevan finds out that Sapna has got married. In dismay, he decides to propose to Sandhya, who agrees to marry him. What impact will Vasudevan's past have on Sandhya when she finds out about Sapna? What will happen of Sapna when she realises that she has lost her love to someone else?
