In 1964, Ansari, an extremist from Pakistan, hatches a plan to undermine the harmonious bond between Kashmiri Pandits and Muslims by manipulating the Indian Army. As part of his scheme, he sends a group of indoctrinated teenagers to Kashmir, disguised as locals.
Meanwhile, in 1985, Afreen, a provocative Pakistani agitator, is confronted by her university dean in London. The dean demands that Afreen apologizes to Anand Mehta, an Indian philanthropist, for her act of setting his car on fire in retaliation for the burning of the Pakistani flag.
When Ram refuses to comply, Vishnu succumbs to the demands to safeguard Vaidehi and their children from the terrorists. This decision has haunted Vishnu, leading him to live a life filled with regret. He stops Afreen and tries to prevent the delivery of the letter to Sita.
In the letter, Sita discovers the heartbreaking news that Ram has been executed in prison. Distraught, she finds a newspaper clipping attached to the letter, which was published by Marthandam. The article reveals that Ram knew Sita’s identity but loved her regardless of her religion. Such was the depth of his love for her.
