Reshma (Preity Zinta) who is from the same village becomes a part of this network. Major Khanna trains her for spying and during this process of training they both fall in love with each other. Reluctant as he is, he sends her across the border as a maidservant in Colonel Hidayatulla's (Deep Dhillon) house. He is associated with Isaq Khan and Maulana Azhar who are enemies of Major Khanna.
In the meantime, Reshma is exposed in front of Isaq Khan, Maulana Azhar and Colonel Hidayatulla. She manages to escape from them and comes across the border with important information.
