Hi, will try to help.
Not much has happened till date - a classic syndrome of typical Ekta Kapoor serials/ shows.
Anyway, coming to the story at hand -
Ragini Patel and Dr Neil (aka Nachiket) Khanna are a divorced couple. While Ragini stays in Mumbai with two of their children - Nishi and Aarav, Dr Neil stays in New York with the remaining brood - Ranbir, Aagam and Suhani.
Of the children, Ranbir is supposedly the eldest, followed by Nishi. Aarav and Aagam are twins. Now Suhani is the surprise package. Though Suhani knows Ragini to be her Mother; Ragini is unaware of her existence. [We still do not know how].
Along with Dr Neil and kids, resides Pam [Neil's sister] - the Bua of the kids - but whom the NYC share of kids address as Mom sometimes - pretty weird I know.
Dr Neil is a world famous cardiologist, he does visit Mumbai once in a while for consultations. During one such visit, he treats Nishi (who has had an accident) and saves her. Nishi recognises Dr Neil as her Father; and goes to the airport to meet him on his return flight. She introduces herself and seeks his help to fix and finalise her wedding to her boyfriend, Jignesh (who runs some business). Ragini is kind of against the marriage as she feels that both Nishi & Jignesh are young and that Nishi needs to complete her education first.
Ragini is a certified nurse and also the Admin Head of one of the top notch hospitals in Mumbai. The owner-cum-surgeon, Dr Aman is a friendly person who loves Ragini and wants to marry her. But Ragini doesn't encourage his advances.
Now, both Ragini and Neil have been apart for 15 years. So when Neil calls Ragini from NYC to discuss about Nishi's marriage and how Ragini should not stand in the path of her own daughter's happiness and blah blah, all hell breaks lose.
Nishi's wedding is finally decided upon. Nishi goes one step ahead and invites her Dad and family to wedding. Ragini is unaware of this development and is hence unprepared and irritated, when Neil turns up on her doorstep one fine morning before the engagement, saying that he is in India just to honour the wishes of his kids who were very keen to attend their sister's wedding. He taunts Ragini about how he never expected her to move on, since no guy would like to spend their life with her. Hurt by the barb, Ragini in forms him that she is married to Dr Aman. Neil finds this bit of news very difficult to digest (and is presently suffering from heartburn).
Pam tells Suhani that she has gotten admission in Brown University and has to return immediately to complete the processes. Suhani is heartbroken but leaves India, requesting her brothers to hand over her gifts to their Mother and other siblings.
Pam is responsible for spewing venom in the minds of these 3 kids about their Mother - however only Ranbir believes in her, while Aagam and Suhani are too enthusiastic about meeting their estranged family. Pam realises that Neil stills thinks of Ragini and she doesn't want Ragini back in Neil's life, at any cost. So she is elated when she finds out that Ragini has married Dr Aman.
She berates and humiliates Ragini at the engagement ceremony, but Ragini keeps quiet keeping in mind the presence of the in-laws. Ragini's Mom is surprised about the news of her marriage with Dr Aman - Ragini tells her that it is just a ploy to ensure that Neil keeps his mouth shut, so that he doesn't insult her further.
During the rituals at the engagement ceremony, Jignesh' Dadi makes it mandatory that Nishi's Father has to do the rituals instead of her Mother, especially when he is available at the venue. Ragini has no option but to agree. Dr Aman is surprised when he comes to know that Dr Neil is Nishi's Father - Ragini explains the situation to him and requests him to support her.
Neil is now in Mumbai for a month. He agrees to join Dr Aman's Hospital as a consultant surgeon - Ragini is distressed, but there is nothing that she can do about it.
Meanwhile, Neil and his side of the family are saying with their common friends - Karan and Dimpy. while Karan is mainly Ragini's friend, Dimpy is more closer to Neil. Pam conspires with Dimpy, and requests her to invite Nivedita back to Mumbai. Her plan is to get Nivedita injected into Neil's life so that he also moves along.
Now, who is Nivedita?????
She is the sister of Roopali, Neil's ex-GF, before Ragini came into his life. Roopali is no more but Nivedita is hell bent on making Neil hers - this part is actually making Ragini uncomfortable.
Meanwhile, a young girl gets re-admitted at the Hospital and is serious, Ragini requests Neil to save the kid, and she became emotional on hearing that the kid's Father has left them for another women, and now the kid's Mother is all alone and helpless. Neil prepares for the operation, while Ragini is very tense outside. Dr Aman bumps into her and consoles her by patting her back, while Ragini weeps. Dr Aman sees them both and wonders how Ragini could move on so easily, while he is still stuck in the same rut.
On the other hand, Jignesh' Dadi wants a lavish wedding. Ragini is trying to make both her ends meet, but she is unable to raise the funds. She decides to see her apartment (a gift from her Father), this surprises her family. Aaron reacts negatively on this count as he feels that in future, the burden of purchasing a new house will fall entirely on him. Nishi agrees to cancel her wedding though. Aarav is also upset as Ragini refuses to gift him a motorbike on his birthday the next day, given that they are under severe financial constraints due to the wedding. So there is a serious misunderstanding brewing there.
Aagam on the other hand returns Neil's credit card to Pam, stating that he wants to spend his Birthday with his Mother, and brothers and sister, and didn't need the card. Pam is super upset and fuels Nivedita further to increase her dosage on Neil.
Neil, meanwhile wants to purchase a flat in the Vile Parle (East) area, where he used to live earlier. Both of them unknowingly approaches the same real estate agent.
Phew ... other things have also happened, but this is what I remember.
