The show ended the on 1 July 2019, broadcasting a total of 1358 episodes through it's run.
Part 1 (2014-2016)
Set in 1996 in Azadganj village, a wealthy landlord Kamal Narayan uses the villagers as bonded labourers. Couple Bhuvan Lal Singh and Kasturi face financial difficulty; as collateral for a loan, they agree to let Kamal use their unborn child as a servant.
Seven years later, Chakor, now a bonded labourer, is an aspiring marathon runner and has a younger sister Imli. She befriends Kamal's nephew Vivaan and campaigns for the villagers' rights. Unaware, she also has a twin sister, Chunni, who was secretly raised in Mumbai. Kamal kills her, motivating Chakor to seek revenge. She escapes with her marathon coach to pursue her dreams and vows to return to the village in 10 years. Vengeful for the betrayal, Kamal gets Chakor's grandmother buried alive.
Part 2 (2016-2019)
Chakor, now a famous marathon runner, returns. Imli hates her for leaving them all behind. Chakor learns about her grandmother's death and gets Kamal arrested, though he is later bailed. Vivaan, Kamal's son, rebuilds his bond with Chakor; they fall in love.
Imli falls in love with Suraj, Vivaan's cousin, whose marriage is arranged to Tina Raichand. A double ceremony is planned for them. Imli explains this to Tina who conspires to switch places in the ceremony. However, Suraj learns about this and shows his cruelty by switching them, marrying Imli to Vivaan while he marries Chakor. Love blossoms between Vivaan and Imli. Still in love with her, Suraj releases Chakor from their marriage. Kamal forces him to be a bonded labourer in revenge. Suraj and Chakor fall in love and get married.
Imli turns evil and gives Vivaan a sleeping pill which puts him into a coma. She also conspires with Kamal to have Chakor killed; she succeeds and Chakor is presumed dead. She however survives and realises that she's pregnant. She, later, reunites with Suraj and they return to Azadganj, forgiving Imli. Kamal kidnaps Chakor, and she miscarries. In return, she kills Kamal to avenge all deaths, and is jailed for 5 years. Meanwhile, Imli hits Suraj with an iron rod, causing him to lose his memory.
Five years later, Chakor is shocked to learn Imli's truth. Eventually, Suraj regains his memories and they reunite. Imli tries to injure her, but has an accident and is presumed dead. Two years later, Imli, still alive, returns. Her gun dealer Yashwant tries to kill Suraj; when Vivaan gets in the way, Chakor accidentally shoots him to death. Imli swears revenge and kidnaps Chakor and Suraj's daughter, Saanvi. Suraj blames Chakor and severs ties with her. They both leave the village: Suraj moves to New York while Chakor moves to a different town. Imli, meanwhile, makes Saanvi a labourer.
Chakor and Suraj both return to village for work and form a bond with Saanvi, unaware of their relation. Imli finally tells them the truth and an apologetic Suraj reconciles with Chakor. An year later, Suraj is killed in a bomb-blast, a result of a political fallout. Chakor, rather than telling Saanvi, pays Suraj's look-alike Raghav Khanna to take his place. Imli turns good and dies while saving Raghav from a villain. Chakor gets jailed for 10 years under false charges and Saanvi is adopted by a rich couple.
10 years later, Chakor traces her daughter and tries to get close to her. The rich couple tries to separate them and kills Raghav, causing Saanvi to leave them. She marries a boy, Sameer and they move to Sitapur. He is, however, brutally killed by Ranvijay, who had helped Imli in hitting Suraj with an iron rod earlier. Chakor and Saanvi unite to get revenge and Ranvijay is burnt alive. Finally, Chakor comes back to Azadganj as Saanvi decides to stay in Sitapur.
