Their subtle enmity ensues and their egos don't allow them to realize that in reality they were both only trying to better their own city/town. The inspector tries to steer clear of the nosy journalist at all costs, but many such circumstances compel the two to cross paths. As their interactions evolve over time, the cop witnesses a few instances where he starts observing that the journalist's intentions were not really only to sensationalize news. He could sense that she cared for justice too!
Similarly, over the course of her own reporting, Sona also gets an insight into the fact that the city's inspector she'd been targeting so long was possibly not as bad as she'd thought him out to be - at least not as bad as the other usual 'bad/corrupt' cops she'd come across.
Quite expectedly, passage of time ensures that the inspector and journalist iron out their differences and begin to share a friendly amiable professional relationship.
With their increasing interactions, her suspicions against the inspector are proved wrong time and again. She then decides to co-operate with him and stop meddling in his affairs - basically, letting him do his job. At crime scenes, she avoids publicizing any info she comes across that she guesses would otherwise compromise his investigations. Why, she even begins giving the handsome inspector 'insider-info' on a couple of occasions - info she received from her own small network of informers. Obviously this could eventually jeopardize her career, but she didn't mind as long as it was helping put villains behind bars. Now, these 'deals' between the two definitely helps the police force bust a few underworld-ongoings, but also puts the young lady's life at risk.
Needless to say, when the underworld learn of how their dealings were being busted it pisses them off to no end! The young journalist soon starts receiving many death threats and even encounters a close brush with near-death. However, NONE of these intimidations stop her. Not till one not-so-fine day she learns what the underworld had managed to do to her informer-friend. If she didn't want to be found lying at the bottom of a ditch like her informer-friend, she better bring her investigations to a halt - at least temporarily. However, the damage had been done and it was only a matter of time before the underworld would get back at her for going against them!
When the inspector is updated with the situation, he is thrown into a moral dilemma. Though he didn't really want the responsibility - it became his duty to ensure her life was safe! The fact that she was extremely beautiful, daring and single did NOT help matters either! He'd used her sources to nab a few convicts and his conscience would never let him stand by and watch her die...
There was no way he could keep a close watch on her at all times. He wouldn't be allowed to station officers permanently for her protection since the information she was providing him was confidential and for low-profile cases. Besides, he knew that his hot-headed journalist friend wouldn't encourage 24 hour protection either. Yet, he couldn't possibly be with her personally at all times. Additionally, their subtle-yet-not-so-subtle friendly meetings were beginning to raise a few eyebrows.
He ponders on the issue for a while - in fact, a long while and then comes to a conclusion. The only thing he could do, he decides to do.
Under the guise of a scheduled case interview the following day, he acts upon his decision. When the two get a lone spare moment amidst the myriad of reporters and officers, he asks her in a low tone very matter-of-factly
'By the way, Sona ji...I thought about this... do you think you would want to marry me?'
There was plenty of concern, but little affection in his eyes as he blurted the statement. If she said yes, she'd automatically assume a title of a reputed police officer 's wife and even be entitled to 24 hour protection if he ever asked for it - Now THAT was his main motto behind the proposal!
Thrown back by his question, she doesn't know what to say. She had always boasted of being very intuitive, but she never saw this coming from him! She didn't hate him now - not at all. In fact, she knew that he was a good man and very handsome too. She knew many girls would have jumped at the opportunity, but something held her back from saying 'yes'. It was that she didn't love him - at least not yet! Additionally, their professions were very risky - would their pairing be worth it?
Besides, she could sense that he was proposing marriage as an offer of protection. Her pride and ego tried convincing her that she definitely didn't NEED a 'pity-wedding' as she was perfectly capable of taking care of herself.
Yet, some of the sordid things she'd seen lately brought shivers to her spine. Being the wife of a renowned inspector would force the underworld to think thrice before inflicting any harm upon her. She could do with some protection if she needed to carry on with investigative journalism in future. Besides, a marriage with a cop would be the perfect cover-up and hiatus for the time-being.
And i could go on and on... and how Inspector kanhaiyya and Sona... marry... start with a platonic/professional relationship...how she doesn't really get along with her in-laws...but how they couple begin seeing each other for what they are.. and eventually fall passionately in love.
Now why couldn't they have thought of something on these lines? Lol I know...this is such a far cry from housewifey stuff...but this is what I want to watch...
