Plot[change | change source]
Piyaa Albela is a modern-day telling of the classic love story of Menaka and Vishwamitra. The story is about Naren and Pooja, who are very different from each other.
- Naren is on the path of spirituality and meditation. He studies psychology, more in the classroom of his mind and soul than in real-life college. He barely keeps up with current events on the news. He neglects his appearance and his behavior is strange, so others look upon him as anti-social, keeping to himself. As a "poor little rich boy" he has rebelled against his parents, who do not understand him.
- Pooja is the opposite of Naren. She is warm, confident, and a "people" person. Her talents include being a karate champion who can straighten out wayward boys who try to get fresh with her, and dancing at the cultural nights of her university.
- Naren's parents do not understand their son. They think Pooja is the answer to Naren's problems.
