He soon leaves the village to return with his mom, Sumitra to finalize his marriage with Radha and promises the villagers to return within a week's time. But when he return home he is shocked to see him mom dead, is questioned who he is, and finds a look-alike of himself in his place. He is shunned by his uncle, who asks him to leave even after a lot of pleadings. He tries his best to prove that he is Kishan, but is instead arrested by the police and held in a cell where he might as well have to spend the rest of his life.
