To placate her mother, the happily single Pallavi agrees to meet up at a cafe for a blind date that Usha has set up. The date never shows, but Pallavi meets another man, Sandeep. The two of them begin dating. Sandeep seems like the perfect man: he’s handsome, wealthy, and Indian. Later, when discussing their romantic pasts, Sandeep tells her that a former girlfriend tried to commit suicide when they broke up. When Pallavi rejects Sandeeps attempt to give her some earrings, she sees his hands clench in anger, but dismisses it.
Eventually, she tells Usha about her new boyfriend. But far from being overjoyed, like Pallavi expected, Usha is concerned. She demands details about Sandeep so that she can check up on him. An astrologer tells her that Pallavi and Sandeep have unprecedented compatibility. However, a private investigator who Usha hires reports that Sandeep has a string of former girlfriends who are reluctant to talk about him.
Sandeep invites Pallavi to move in with him. She refuses, but instead he offers to pay for the rent on a new apartment for her so she can quit her job and focus on her aspirations to be a writer. Pallavi moves in to the new apartment, but when she tells Usha her mother grows concerned that Sandeep has too much control over her. Pallavi says that Sandeep is only doing things for Pallavi’s own good.
