''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.

The story is about the mohan who is sent abroad at a young and returns after completing his studies, when he returns there will be a behavioural change he will be portrayed as arrogant and a spoilt brat that shows no affection towards his wife, this behavioural change that he undergoes which will make the character look grey. His ideologies will be different from the others. There will be situations wherein his thought process counters the society, but the character is not completely grey. His wife on the other hand is very righteous towards him and always puts him first. She fulfils all her duties as his wife and cares for him immensly. She is a women that will do anything for her husbands and family's wellbeing and happiness. Although he pays no attention to her she is still very loyal and passionate about him and treats him like god. Later on throughout the story his character changes and he becomes more loving towards his wife. The main character is alike Gandhi and their relationship as husband and wife ressembles Gandhi and Kasturba. But the story will not be completely based on him. In this story Kastur will be portrayed approximately 19 years of age.

Update by Episode
Episode 1

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.

Episode 2

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.

Episode 3

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.

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.

Episode 5
The family congratulates Kastur on her splendid dance performance. Jitu tells Kastur that he wants to give her a gift & asks her to tell him what she desires. Kastur requests Jitu to attend the seemant. Tension is created post which Jitu agrees to his daughters' request. Whilst waiting at the airport, Saroj reminiscences about Mohan's departure 4 years ago. We see that the Mohan who left India & the one who has returned are drastically different from each other. Mohan meets Saroj & his mama - mami who are all perturbed by the transformation in Mohan whilst the Mohan who had left India had left with the blessings & good wishes of his family; the Mohan who has returned abhors all things traditional & refuses to take the aarti. Mohan finds out that he will be staying with his mama & realises that he is still unwelcome in his own house; furthering the intrigue w.r.t. the reasons for the tension between Kanti & Mohan. Hit & Miss takes place whilst Kastur in on her way to the seemant & Mohan is on his way to his mama's house. Kastur & Mohan's character differentiation is further reiterated when Kastur gives a beggar some money whilst Mohan abhors the poverty in the country & shoes the beggar away. At the seemant, thinking that Pradeep's family will not be coming his father in law (Sudhir) announces the arrival of the shagun on behalf of Sonal's sasuraal. Pradeep is shocked by this news & questions Sudhir. Sudhir tells him that it wouldn't look nice if all the guests were to find out that Pradeep's family not only refused to attend the seemant but also didn't send any shagun. Sudhir & Pradeep are shocked when Jitu & family enter the seemant at that very moment. Kastur finds out that Mohan has returned to India.

Episode 6

Kastur shares her excitement with Jasu. As the seemant celebrations start, Kastur imagines herself dancing with Mohan. Jasu breaks her reverie.

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.

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.

Episode 7

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.
