''Behind every successful man there is a woman'' is the thought upon which Dharampatni is based.
Dharampatni is the story of Kastur a simple, traditional Gujarati girl who gets married to Mohan. Mohan too belongs to the Gujarati community but has studied abroad and returned to India. Unbeknown to Kastur, Mohan agrees to marry her due to personal constraints rather than for love. Mohan has no affection or respect for Kastur as he looks down upon all Gujarati cultural values and traditional beliefs that Kastur embodies. Apart from being trapped in a loveless marriage; Kastur is in for a further shock when she finds out that Mohan is a good for nothing, who did not get a degree abroad and instead wasted all his time & resources. Instead of ruing her plight; through the strength of her character and her selfless spirit Kastur transforms Mohan from a common man into a great one. She makes Mohan believe in and achieve his true potential as a Gujarati. The show focuses upon Kastur's silent struggles, sacrifices and contributions which while going unnoticed; shape Mohan's journey towards greatness.

Kastur is introduced in Radha's avatar as she relentlessly pursues the sound of Krishna's flute. Just as she is about to hold Krishna's hand - Kastur's dream breaks. Kastur's mother is introduced & we establish that Kastur has a special connect with somebody called 'Mohan' about whom everybody in her family teases her. Kastur's family is introduced as a family filled with love & laughter. Amidst this revelry - Mohan's pic is seen from Kastur's pov. Meanwhile, the family atmosphere is marred as seeds of tension are sown over Sonal's (Kastur's Sis in Law) Seemant ceremony. Jasuben (Kastur's dadi) obliterates Kasturs' worries regarding the same as they rush out for a movie. At the mall; Kastur witnesses a girl being rude to Jasu and condescendingly jeering her for being a Gujju. Kastur stands up for her dadi and puts the girl in her place by giving a strong & emotionally powerful rejoinder. Kastur's words establish her character firmly as that of a girl deeply rooted in gujrati tradition & culture; proud not only of her region but also her identity as an Indian. Kastur's emotional spiel is met with resounding applause by curious onlookers.
As they exit the mall; Kastur's bag is stolen. Unafraid for her own safety; Kastur pursues the thief. The thief empties her bag of the money & throws it into a ditch. Jasu reaches Kastur & scolds her for doing something so dangerous. Wordlessly, Kastur takes out a Krishna idol & Mohan's pic and Jasu realises the reasons which prompted Kastur's daredevilry. En route for her dance rehearsal; Kastur sees Sudhir (Sonal's father) on the road. She calls out to him but to no avail. Kastur picks up the envelope; mistakenly dropped by Sudhir & is shocked upon seeing the contents. Kastur reaches home only to see Sudhir extending the same invitation to Jitu (Kastur's father). Jitu realises that Sonal's parents and his son (Pradeep) have decided to do the seemant at a fancy hall rather than their home; as per custom. Jitu tells Pradeep that he will not be coming for the seemant. Bhanu bhai (Mohan's father) is introduced as Jitu's old friend. Through him, other characters in Mohan's house including his authoritarian dada - Kanti Bhai are introduced. It is established that there is some issue within the family over Mohan. Kastur finds out that Mohan will be returning soon and that her dream of the previous morning will be coming true.
Kastur leaves for the dance rehearsal still overawed by the news of Mohan's imminent arrival. She imagines the presence of Mohan around her as she waits expectantly for his arrival. Kastur's friends realize the reasons behind her preoccupation & tease her about Mohan. Mohan's grandfather gives a telling off to Vipul (Mohan's elder brother) for supplying faulty masalas & penalizes him for the same. Kanti Bhai gets further angered when Narmada (Mohan's bhabhi) interjects whilst the men are having a business conversation. He gives her a telling off & categorically states that the women of his household are responsible for purely taking care of domestic issues, handling the home and have no business interjecting in matters of money or other issues which are the men's responsibility. (Mohan's mother) is introduced at the rehearsal hall as a dominating lady who always likes having her way. In her interaction with Kastur we seed in the future conflict w.r.t. saas & bahu as Saroj gives a telling off to Kastur as she inadvertently ends up disrupting her meeting. Kastur who had previously been fighting to let her rehearsal take place on time has a dramatic changeover & becomes a bheegi billi in front of Saroj.
Kanti Bhai gives a telling off to Bhanu & Saroj for their absence from the morning aarti. As Saroj lets off her frustration for having no standing within her own house; owing to Kanti Bhai's dictatorial ways - she lets it slip out that Mohan will be arriving the next day. Tension is further created when Saroj tells Bhanu that Mohan will not be coming home & instead will stay with his mama. The intrigue about the family issues over Mohan's return is built further. Meanwhile, Jasuben attempts to convince Jitu to attend Sonal's seemant ceremony. Jasu explains to Jitu that whilst there can be a difference of opinion amongst individuals it should result in differences of hearts which would divide the family & mar their happiness & togetherness. Despite Jasu's words' Jitu remains steadfast about not attending the Seemant & instead going only for Kastur's Krishna Leela performance. Kastur is revealed in her dance performance of Krishna Leela as Krishna whilst Mohan is introduced as he arrives at the airport.
Kastur shares her excitement with Jasu. As the seemant celebrations start, Kastur imagines herself dancing with Mohan. Jasu breaks her reverie. Whilst on one hand Kastur is celebrating the return of the Mohan of her imagination we see that Mohan has become completely different. He is disparaging about Gujarati culture & traditions. His mama is further shocked when he realises that Mohan has started smoking. Bharat wonders as to how Kanti will react to the transformation in Mohan when they finally come face to face.The shagun for the ceremony arrives & Jitu & Sharda are shocked when they find out that shagun has already been given on their behalf. Jitu gets extremely angry with Pradeep and gives him a telling off post which the family leaves the seemant mid way. Pradeep too leaves the ceremony and comes home to apologize for hurting his father. Jitu refuses to listen to his apology. Sharda plays peacemaker and helps her husband & son reconcile their differences. Kastur is left thinking & impressed by her mother who she sees managing all her relationships, handling all issues with a smile on her face & with inordinate amounts of patience. Kastur wishes that she hopes that once she becomes Mohan's wife she too will be able to manage all her relationships & responsibilities with the same skill.
Kastur is restless & excited post hearing the news of Mohan's return. She contemplates calling him but desists. We establish that despite their differences; there is one thing in common which Kastur & Mohan share which is their love for rain. Bharat questions Mohan about his smoking & Mohan uses his charm to weasel out of the situation. The back story about Mohan & Kanti's issues against him is revealed. We realize that Saroj had surreptitiously sent Mohan abroad without Kanti's knowledge. Post finding out about the same, Kanti had raises hell & stated that Mohan would never be allowed to return home. Mohan wonders whether he will ever be able to live with his family. Saroj assuages his concerns & states that Mohan's rightful place is in the house & she is waiting for the apt opportunity to bring him home. Sharda & Jasu tell Kastur about the attributes which make a wife & ideal wife. The words make a strong impression in Kastur's heart & she sees Mohan's picture and hopes that she will become his ideal wife as well.
Kastur inadvertently ends up informing Kanti about Mohan's return. Kanti gets angry with Saroj & Bhanu for not telling him beforehand. In his fury, Kanti reiterates that he will not let Mohan live in his house. Saroj gets angry with Kastur for poking her nose in the business of others. Saroj emotionally tells Bhanu to do whatever it takes to bring Mohan back to the house.
Bhanu speaks with Kanti & reminds him of the promise given to Kastur's family about Mohan & Kastur's marriage. Bhanu tells Kanti that in order to fulfill his promise, Kanti will need to let Mohan return home. Kanti reluctantly agrees. Hit & Miss takes place between Kastur & Mohan whilst Kastur returns from the mandir & bangs into Mohan.
Kastur is perplexed as she senses Mohan. She thinks her imagination is playing tricks as she sees the boy go to buy cigarettes. Kastur departs as she believes that Mohan can have no vices. Saroj informs Mohan that Kanti has given permission for his return home. Mohan arrives & the entire family is overjoyed to see him after so many years. Mohan deliberately angers Kanti by calling him 'grandpa'. Bhanu chides him for going against his warnings & for deliberately upsetting Kanti. Mohan tells Bhanu to relax as he knows how to make amends & has a plan up his sleeve.
Mohan gives Kanti his degree & upon the family's persuasion; Kanti reluctantly blesses Mohan. The family utilizes the opportunity to take Kanti's permission to throw a party in honor of Mohan's return. At the party, Kastur is shocked & surprised by the transformation in Mohan and cannot bring herself to speak with him. Jasu goads Kastur & forces her to accompany her to Mohan so that Kastur can be introduced to him.
Kastur comes face to face with Mohan but due to her nervousness & shyness can't say much apart from inadvertently muttering 'jai shri mohan'. Mohan is perplexed by her attitude & Kastur runs away overcome by her feelings. Kanti comes to the party surprising everybody. Tension is created when Kanti tells Bhanu that he has come to announce Mohan & Kastur's rishtha. Bhanu worries about the repercussion of Kanti making this announcement as he knows that not only is Saroj unaware of this decision but will also be against it. Natu chidaoes Kastur & goads her into talking to Mohan. Seeing Mohan surrounded by pretty, modern girls'; Kastur retreats. At the behest of others, Mohan's participates in the dancing taking place & overawes everybody with his moves. Seeing his flirtatious interactions with another girl; makes Kastur worried & apprehensive. Kanti finds out that alcohol is being served in the party & is outraged. Kanti is stunned when he sees Mohan lift a glass of alcohol.
Kastur goes into a trance as she sees Mohan. Mohan goes to open the door & Kastur holds his hand as she is terrified about what everybody would think. Mohan thinks she's a bit strange & exits. Jasu comes & Kastur attempts to explain in her nervousness. Jasu tells Kastur to calm down & serve Mohan the undhiyo she made for him. Mohan receives a call & we establish that something went awry in London. Mohan leaves the dinner before Kastur can serve him. Kastur gets upset with his sudden departure. Mohan meets his friend and we build the intrigue as Mohan needs money desperately. Pradeep & Natu attempt to console Kastur thinking she would be upset with Mohan's abrupt departure. However, Kastur states that she isn't upset as Mohan didn't do anything wrong and she likes the fact that Mohan gives importance to his work. Mohan tells Saroj about his need for money & Saroj reassures him by stating that she will get Bhanu to speak with Kanti. Ganpati celebrations take place in Mohan's house. Saroj is overjoyed when Kanti tells her to involve Mohan in the puja. Post the puja, Mohan & Saroj ask Bhanu to speak with Kanti about the need for money. Kanti overhears and refuses to give the money. A major confrontation breaks out between Kanti & Mohan post which Mohan leaves in a huff. Kanti is furious.

Kastur sees Mohan's picture & remembers him praising the undhiyo she made. She is happy at the memory when Natu snatches the picture out of her grasp. She admonishes Natu when he surprises her by gifting a picture of the two of them from the party. Saroj confronts Bhanu with the papers & demands from him to tell her as to what is going on between Kastur & Mohan. Before Bhanu can react, both are called out for the Ganpati puja wherein Kanti announces Kastur & Mohan's rishtha and states that they should now start thinking about the marriage. Mohan meets his friend who states that they have to give a deadline as to when they will be returning the money. Mohan asks for an hour to finalize the deadline & rushes away. Bhanu tells Saroj about how the decision was taken regarding the marriage. Saroj is hurt & upset as such a major decision of her son's life was hidden from her & she wasn't party to it. Saroj adamantly states that Kastur is no match for Mohan & that she won't let this marriage take place & is convinced that Mohan too will be anti the decision. Kastur is shocked to see Mohan at her house. Jasu utilizes the opportunity to send Kastur & Mohan on a date.
Sharda & Jitu raise their reservations about Kastur & Mohan being out alone. They fear that Mohan's family will not like it when they come to know about it. Jasu tells them that they're worrying unduly & gets upset as they question her decision. She states that she sent them out alone so that they could get to know each other otherwise they would have been like strangers after marriage. Kastur & Mohan spent time alone. Kastur is unable to strike a conversation especially since Mohan looks preoccupied. Tension builds as Bobby awaits Mohan's return & cannot get through to him. Kastur & Mohan get stuck in the rain as their taxi breaks down. Moment is built as Kastur attempts to shelter Mohan from the rain. They decide to take a bus & Kastur is overawed when she sees Mohan being protective towards her. Her joy know no bounds as a lady in the bus refers to them as husband & wife. Both stop at a restaurant to grab a bite to eat. Mohan leaves to get water when Kastur notices some young rowdy boys attempted to steal from the unoccupied cashier's box & prevents them.
Kastur confronts the boys & prevents them from stealing. She moves outside to search for Mohan when the boys accost her. Mohan returns in time & prevents the boys' from teasing Kastur. A fight breaks out & Mohan is surprised by a sudden blow & gets hurt. Kastur helps him reach home wherein Saroj is shocked to see Mohan return home - injured & with Kastur. Kastur holds herself responsible for Mohan's injuries. Her family attempts to calm her down. Jitu calls Bhanu to express his concern for Mohan's injuries & to express his gratitude for saving Kastur. Bhanu is shocked to know that Mohan & Kastur were together and wonders why Saroj lied to him. Saroj confronts Mohan & asks him if he has any feelings for Kastur. Mohan quells her doubts & is shocked to find out that his marriage has been fixed with Kastur. Mohan assuages Saroj's concerns & states that she needn't worry as he will never marry Kastur. Buoyed by her son's support, Saroj decides to challenge Kanti's dictate & decision about getting Mohan & Kastur married.
Kastur calls Mohan up to ask him about his well being. Mohan replies curtly to her & disconnects the phone. The pandit is called by Kanti in order to finalize the wedding dates. Saroj tells Kanti that this will not be required. A major confrontation breaks out between the two as Saroj vehemently states her disapproval w.r.t. Kanti's decision about getting Mohan married to Kastur & states that Mohan too doesn't want to marry Kastur. Kanti tells Saroj that he wants to hear this directly from Mohan & also states that if Mohan doesn't want to marry Kastur he should return the money Jitu gave for Mohan's education. Mohan overhears the confrontation & leaves abruptly. Kanti decides to wait in one place for Mohan's return so that he can hear Mohan's final decision. Saroj calls Mohan who tells her that he heard Kanti's dictate but doesn't reveal what he's going to do next. Mohan reaches Kastur's house & angrily lashes out at her asking her as to how she could ever agree to marry him when she doesn't even know him. Mohan states that they are both mismatched & categorically tells Kastur that he will never marry her; leaving Kastur in tears with all her hopes & dreams completely shattered.
Kanti sees that the Lakshmi murti is not in place & throws a fit. Bobby calls Mohan & states that he needs the money urgently. Saroj overhears Mohan's conversation. She confronts Mohan & questions him as to why he stole money from his own family. Mohan is shocked at Saroj's accusation. Saroj reveals to Mohan that she saw Mohan keeping the money back in the tijori. She drags Mohan to her room & takes off all her jewelry & asks him to tell her about his troubles. She tells Mohan that she knows he's marrying Kastur for money & that he should sell off her jewelry rather than compromise & marry Kastur. Mohan tells Saroj that he's in trouble as he made a mistake but assures her that he hasn't commit any crime. Saroj reiterates to Mohan that he shouldn't marry Kastur. Mohan stays firm in his decision. Saroj tells him that if her aspirations & dreams don't matter to him then she will not attend any of the marriage ceremonies. Bhanu tells Saroj to change her mind as Baapji will be very angry. Saroj stays firm & states that she's scared of nobody. The engagement starts and Kastur realises that Saroj is missing. She overhears Bhanu speak with Veena & believes that Saroj is not attending the ceremony on account of what happened in the jewelry shop.
Mohan asks Saroj as to why she changed her mind about attending the engagement. Saroj tells Mohan that if he could change his decision about marrying Kastur; so can she. Mohan is left perplexed by her explanation. Amidst all the tension, Mohan and Kastur's engagement takes place. Kastur attempts to speak with Mohan alone but is unable to do so. She asks him to meet her the next day as she has something important to discuss. At home, Bhanu asks Saroj why she changed her mind. Saroj tells him that Kastur apologized to her and asked her to come & she couldn't refuse. Bhanu is left unconvinced. Sonal tells Pradeep that Bobby did fraud in her father's company and expresses concern over the company Mohan keeps. The next day, Kastur meets Mohan and tells him to repay her father's loan.

Kanti tells Mohan that his debt will be waived off if he joins the kirana business. Mohan signs the papers and walks off. Saroj follows Mohan and states that in his ambition he is compromising by marrying Kastur. Mohan states that he has only thought about being rich and that marriage doesn't mean anything to him. Mohan tells Saroj that soon he will be so rich that they will never ever have to worry about any troubles. The navratri puja takes place and the wedding card arrives. Kanti tells Bhanu to accompany him to Jitu's house. Kanti gives Jitu the wedding card and also states that he wants the navratri puja and the welcoming of the garba to be done by Kastur. Mohan meets Pradeep and Sudhir and feigns ignorance about Bobby. Sudhir tells Pradeep that he feels something is amiss. Saroj is happy that as she brings in the garba, Kanti will have to stoop down and touch her feet. Kastur sees Mohan having a heated argument with Bobby and is perplexed.

The signs match. However, Mohan
gets out of the situation. Post the sangeet ceremony, the other rituals
leading up to the marriage ' the mehendi & haldi ceremony takes
place in both Kastur & Mohan's house. The festivities are dampened
for Mohan as he gets a threatening call from the loan sharks who serve
him an ultimatum to return 5 lac to them before his marriage takes
place. Mohan is left worried & tense as he wonders how to arrange
the money in such a short span off time.
Kastur gets ready for the wedding & leaves for the marriage hall. The family gets emotional at her last moments in the house whilst Kastur reminisces about her time, childhood memories spent in the house. Meanwhile, Mohan's baraat departs for the venue. Tension builds when the loan sharks call Mohan who disconnects their phone & worries about organizing the 5 lac that he needs to return to them.

Kastur is unable to lie to Sharda & reveals that Mohan has taken it. Sharda gets agitated & decides to tell Jitu. However, Kastur gives her a kasam & prevents her from doing so as it would result in breaking Mohan's trust in her. Sharda gives Kastur her own jewelry in order to ensure that no ruckus is created. The wedding ceremony takes place & Kastur vows to be Mohan's strength & support and fulfill all her duties and responsibilities as his dharam patni.
Post the marriage rituals being completed; the families haggle over money for Mohan's jootis. Kastur's bidaai takes place as her family bids her an extremely emotional goodbye. As the car carrying Kastur & Mohan to her new house departs; Kastur's family is left behind emotional & teary eyed. Kastur cannot control her tears as she sobs in the car. Mohan is flummoxed about what he should do in the situation. Mohan attempts to console Kastur but realizing that it won't help; takes earphones & starts listening to music. Kastur's grah pravesh takes place post which the families celebrates her arrival with traditional fun games played between Kastur & Mohan. Kastur is escorted to Mohan's room. Kastur enters the room & looks around wondrously as the room which has now become her home. Hearing Mohan approach, she quickly goes & sits on the bed. Mohan enters & locks the door & faces Kastur. Kastur looks at him approach expectant & nervous.
Kastur sees Mohan asleep on the bed & is bewildered about what she should do next. She feels cold in the AC & sees the remote besides Mohan. As she goes to take it, her hands inadvertently touch with Mohan's. Kastur shies away & withdraws as she looks around her new home. Not finding any space on the bed; Kastur goes to sleep on the sofa. The next day dawns & Mohan sees Kastur asleep on the sofa. He casually covers Kastur up with a blanket seeing that she is feeling cold. Kastur wakes up to repeated knocking on the door & is confronted by Saroj who admonishes her for getting up late & curtly tells her to get ready & come down quickly.
