Suryakant Garodia is married to Savitri. They have four daughters: Saraswati, Gauri, Durga and Lakshmi. Owing to medical problems, Savitri can't have anymore children. Wanting a male child, Suryakant marries Menka who gives him Yuvraj. Suryakant pays lesser attention to Savitri and her daughters, and spends more time with Menka. He over pampers Yuvraj who starts abusing Suryakant's trust in him. Later on, Menka's brother Rasik tells her to get all the daughters married so that only her would rule the house. Menka tricks Suryakant into getting Saraswati married to a tyrant, Bhavishya Kapadia. Their wedding process undergoes a lot of troubles and problems, especially when Yuvraj steals and sells Saraswati's wedding jewelry, causing Suryakant to send her to her in-laws without jewelry but Savitri's sister Chanchal stops him from doing so by threatening to give Saraswati her jewelry. In the meantime, Lakshmi falls in love with Satyakaam, Bhavishya's younger brother who is a good man. Menka instigates Suryakant against Satyakaam and Suryakant tries to get Lakshmi engaged to Chatainyan, who is the son of a business partner. At the same time, Yuvraj goes to a brothel and meets a courtesan called Kajri, of whom he tries to marry. He and Kajri, along with Rasili (the brothel owner) put up a pretext of Kajri being Princess Pavitra and Rasili the Royal Mother. Yuvraj's family are totally deceived by their pretence and grant the marriage. Saraswati discovers that Bhavishya was once in love with a girl called Preeti and he had strangled her a year ago when she refused to marry him. He now visits her remains in a red isolated cottage. Bhavishya tries to burn Saraswati alive but her ex-lover, Kshitij rescues her. Suryakant files a case against Bhavishya in order to have him severely punished. Bhavishya discovers that "Pavitra" is actually a prostitute in disguise. He blackmails Yuvraj into helping him win the case. Yuvraj tells Kshitij not to testify against Bhavishya as his affair with Saraswati before the marriage would be revealed. Kshitij testifies in Bhavishya's favour and says that he tried to burn Saraswati. Thus, Bhavishya wins the case. The sisters, not satisfied, wish to get justice for Saraswati, so Lakshmi pretends to marry Satyakaam, making Chatainyan and family break ties with the Garodia family. Saraswati announces her move to go back to her in-laws' house Suryakant disowns Lakshmi and Saraswati. The two sisters move back to the Kapadia house, which worries Bhavishya and his parents. Satyakaam manages to get hold of Bhavishya's diary which everything' he did with Preeti was written down. Yuvraj gets married to 'Pavitra'. This causes some conflict in the family as Pavitra can't do any housework, so Yuvraj always accuses Menka of making his wife overwork. Back at the Kapadia house, Saraswati pretends to be a reincarnate of Preeti which totally deceives Bhavishya. His mother Dhara proves to be a rock in their path, but the sisters accomplish their mission, making Bhavishya, Dhara and Neckband to be arrested. Suryakant bails Kshitij out and accepts his daughters back again. He arranges for Lakshmi's and Satyakaam's wedding, but Satyakaam dies before that, throwing Lakshmi into a state of sorrow. Saraswati marries Kshitij after she starts carrying Bhavishya's child (an Indian woman can not marry when she is pregnant, and it would seem as if Saraswati had a street affair with someone as Bhavishya is in jail). Suryakant requests Durga to take Lakshmi to her friend's place so that she would forget her sorrow. Over there, Lakshmi meets Karan after he rescues her from a pack of hoodlums. Karan tries to get Lakshmi to say that she loves him but he fails. In the meantime, the sisters, along with Karan, expose Pavitra as a prostitute Kajri, and The Royal Mother as Rasili, the 'madam' of the brothel. Rasili exposes Yuvraj as the mastermind behind the plan. Suryakant tries to disown him but later takes him back. Later, Lakshmi gets married to Karan but discovers on their honeymoon that Karan actually wanted to get revenge on Suryakant for disgracing his family and sexually abusing his mother, but when his revenge day comes, it is revealed that Rasik was actually behind his family's disgrace and his mother's acute fear. Lakshmi tries to divorce him. Later, Durga falls in love with Ranbir Dhawaan, Bhavishya's lookalike that, at first, scares Saraswati. She later over comes her fears. Karan discovers that lakshmi is pregnant.
