He loses to Lily Fernandes (Ranjeeta), the simple and modest daughter of an ordinary nurse in a private nursing home. Arun takes this as a defeat, who then decides to nurse a personal vendetta to try and crush Lily's growing popularity in school. Lily, however, tolerates him and his friends' remarks and sarcasm as she bears no grudge against him.
As time goes on, they gradually discover the basic qualities of their opponents, one becoming the admirer of the other. They visit beautiful places together on weekends to get to know each other better. Lily's mother is the first person to notice the love blossoming between her daughter and Arun.

Despite this, Arun's father approves and presents a proposal to Lily's mother to allow their children to marry.
