Rani Sharma - daughter of a local doctor enters their lives. Raja bumps into Rani at his college and falls in love with her instantly. Rani hesitates at first, but Raja's charms start working their magic on her. Raja calls her to a precarious cliff to profess his love to her. It's a rainy day and Rani gets caught in a storm. Yash happens to be driving past her when she asks him for a ride to the cliff. Yash is instantly smitten by Rani. After some casual flirting with her in the car, he drops her off and she rushes to meet Raja to find out why he called her there. Raja confesses his love to her and she brushes him off. Raja feels snubbed and in order to prove his love for her, he attempts to kill himself while trying to walk off the edge off the cliff backwards to see her reaction. Rani sees his willingness to so easily give his life for her and comes to the realization that his love must indeed be true. After preventing Raja from falling off the cliff at the last minute, they profess their feelings for each other and their love deepens. However Yash, secretly sees them together and is shocked. Jealous and bitter, Yash proceeds to meet Raja under the guise of wanting to introduce the love of his life to his best friend. Raja shows up and Yash looks visibly disturbed. While trying to cheer up Yash, Raja casually holds Yash's hand and leans backwards from very same cliff ledge and tells him that he loves his friend and trusts him. Yash takes the opportunity and tragically kills a stunned Raja by leaving Raja's hand at the last minute and Raja falls to his death. Rani witnesses the murder and tells Yash that they will be together again and he will not be able to do anything. She jumps to her death with intent, leaving Yash heartbroken.
