Aitbaar is what life is based on, and for life to go on Aitbaar is a must. Aitbaar is what relationships are about. Relationships are never complete in between the husband and wife, or friends, or lovers, unless there is Aitbaar.

Once Aitbaar is lost then no amount of repair can ever remove that scar. It will remain, forever Jai Deep (Raj Babbar) is a famous player with expensive habits and taste that he can ill afford. For him life is nothing, but another game that has to be won at all costs no matter what the means.

Neha (Dimple Kapadia) is Jai Deep's wife who likes a traditional Indian wife bears and covers up for all her husband's excesses.

Sagar (Suresh Oberoi) is today the most popular ghazal singer of the country. Neha and Sagar were in college together and were equally fond of each other, but due to circumstances, their paths are different today.

Jai Deep, Neha and Sagar are those beads inspite of being placed together in a necklace are far from each other.

Yet in their own way they are all trying to eliminate this distance between themselves that destiny has created; knowing fully well that the end of one of them may be the only answer... Aitbaar.
