Storyline: The story begins in New York and then it goes into back-flash taking us to Ambala.Ishaan and Tithi are class-mates in school. Later when they grow up, they meet under surprising circumstances and fall in love. The friendship of Ishaan and Aman reminds us of happy and sad times.

Thumps Down: Just another simple love story. There isn’t too much of fun, thrill and action but its more simple in nature. Editing is fine. Printing errors and typos needed correction.
