Young Niloufer is swept off her feet when foreign returned business magnate, Wasim Ahmed, proposes to her, and she accepts. When Wasim decides to spend more and more time at work, is unable to keep appointments with her, and is always late, she get disappointed. Wasim is unable to even recollect their first wedding anniversary on October 18th, and is very late for the party later that day. Quarrels and arguments result, and Wasim divorces her by saying "Talaq" three times.
A heartbroken Niloufer leaves his house, goes to stay in a Girls' Hostel, meets with an newspaper editor, Afaque Siddiqui, and gets married. It is during their marriage ceremony that Wasim makes his first appearance. For he is convinced that Niloufer still loves him, and will eventually divorce Afaque, and re-marry him. He is aware that according to the Shaririat and Islamic Law a Muslim woman can be divorced, but cannot be re-married to him unless and until she has married another male, and is divorced by him by his own free will. But as things stand, Afaque is head over heels in love with Niloufer, and there is no likelihood that he will even consider giving her a divorce under any circumstance. How does the story end?
