Keshav and Saurabh are best buddies, coworkers, flatmates, and co-founders of a detective firm. They’re the same folks from “The Girl in Room 105,” the novel. However, Keshav and Saurabh aren’t speaking because of Keshav’s propensity of fat-shaming Saurabh’s fiancée, Prerna. Keshav constantly finds an excuse to criticize Prerna’s size.
In contrast, Prerna and Saurabh are a corny and romantic couple. They are undoubtedly more in love than any planned couple. Prerna chooses to fast for Saurabh on Karva Chauth. When Saurabh arrived, he discovered Prerna had died from a fall from the terrace. Saurabh suspected it was a murder and started investigating through the A-Z detective business (which he and Keshav jointly owned) to look into it. They went to Prerna’s house and were initially skeptical about Prerna’s uncle Aditya. But the next day, he, too, was discovered dead. They were booted out of Prerna’s house, but they discovered a secret: Anjali and Prerna are the daughters of Bindu.
Because Bindu lacked the maturity to care for her children, Ramesh uncle took Prerna and handed Anjali to Geetu. Because Saurabh had Prerna’s email account, they learned that Ramesh uncle had obtained a loan for their auto showroom and needed money from Prerna, which she had not delivered to Ramesh uncle. However, the tale took a turn when Keshav justified his love for Anjali by telling her to see his entire family, and by that time Ramesh uncle had obtained bail through his political clout. They told Prerna that they had found the true criminal and that Ramesh uncle didn’t need to be in jail. Then, because Anjali was the true offender, Keshav requested her to recount the whole episode of Prerna’s killing. The love bite in Keshav’s chest was identical to the love bite found in Aditya’s chest when they discovered his corpse. Then Anjali told the story of how she traveled from Seattle to Gurgaon on Karva Chauth eve and pushed Prerna off the terrace. She also stated that she did all of this because of the differences between her and Prerna’s lives.
