his daughter Suman (Bhagyashree) live at the latter's house whereby she
meets Kishan's son, Prem (Salman Khan
), and the two become best friends.
Gradually, the duo fall in love with the blessing of Prem's mother,
Kaushalya (Reema Lagoo

absconding it as a method to
trap his son for his money. He insults Karan and Suman and throws them
his house. The movie then proceeds as to how Prem convinces their
his true love. Ranjeet (Ajit Vachani), Kishan's business
partner-cum-friend; Seema (Parvin Dastur), Ranjeet's daughter who
interested in Prem; and Jeevan (Mohnish
Behl), Seema's cousin, all act as an opposing force towards Prem and
