Season one

Shivanya and her cousin Shesha are ichchadhari naagins (shape-shifting serpent-women) who seek to avenge the murders of Shivanya’s parents in a failed attempt to obtain the Naagmani, a magical gem. Shivanya marries the murderer Ankush’s son, Ritik, and kills his accomplices Viren, Shailesh and Suri. Shivanya falls in love with kind-hearted Ritik, giving Shesha concerns about her commitment and risking the loss of her powers.

Ankush’s wife Yamini is the final murderer, who learns Shesha’s nature and turns her against Shivanya. Yamini frames Shivanya for Ankush’s murder so that Ritik swears vengeance against her. Though Ritik’s feelings are conflicted, Yamini helps him kill Shivanya with a magical knife. She also kills Ritik for trying to return naagmani.

Shivanya and Ritik are revived by Lord Shiva. Learning the truth, Ritik helps Shivanya protect the Naagmani. Though she loses her powers, they succeed and kill Yamini.
