Life Partner Companionship, togetherness, love... marriage; the phrase 'Life Partner' has different connotations for different people. There is someone made for everyone, including Karan, Bhavesh and Jeet.

Karan (Fardeen Khan) and Sanjana (Genelia D'Souza) are madly in love with each other. Marriage is the next step to cement their relationship. But is 'love marriage' the right way to be?

For Bhavesh (Tusshar Kapoor), his life partner, Prachi (Prachi Desai) comes with the approval of his family. But is 'arranged marriage' the way forward? Is it right to prioritize family over marriage? Does Prachi have to prove herself as a worthy daughter-in-law to qualify as an ideal wife?
