The story revolves around a group of high-spirited friends who help, support, and enjoy one another’s company as they overcome hardships in their lives.
Four friends, Saad, Shahzain, Shariq and Shehryar call themselves the SSG (Special ‘S’ Gang because all their names start with the letter ‘S’). They all study in Lawrence College in Murree. Saad’s family comprises his father, Brigadier (later Major General) Faraz Inam, who serves in the army, his mother and sister, Rahmeen, an aspiring artist. Shahzain belongs to a rich village family and is the closest to his grandfather, Malik Allahyar. Shariq’s family consists of his sister, Ghazala and his widowed mother. Shehryar’s father is a bandmaster. They often bunk college together at night and once caught by their hostel warden, Firdous Baig.
On the other hand, there is Dua and Rani. Rani is a vivacious girl, who comes from a rich village family. After three years, she is yet to pass her Intermediate exams, which she ultimately doesn’t. Dua comes from Rawalpindi and is seen visiting her cousins, Aisha and Raheel in Murree. Raheel is obnoxious and is over-protective of Dua, which she immensely dislikes and tries to avoid him.
Despite receiving warnings from the headmaster of the college, the SSG still bunk college and this time, they accidentally run into Dua and her cousins. Saad immediately recognizes Dua, while Shariq and Shehryar run away from the scene. Saad tells Shahzain that he had seen Dua twice before and has a crush on her but he didn’t have the courage to tell her about his feelings. Shahzain encourages Saad to go after her and get to know her name since he didn’t.
The next day, they met Dua again after Shariq spots her with her cousins and tells the other three, who immediately rushes to her. As Shahzain and Shehryar begin to introduce themselves to Dua and tell her about Saad, Raheel pushes Saad, thinking he was harassing Dua and a physical fight follows. The police arrive and take Saad and Raheel into custody, while Shahzain and Shehryar flee, later joined by Shariq.
Dua’s parents file a complaint against Saad, in the name of harassment. This causes a rift between the SSG. Shariq refuses to be involved in their tactics anymore. Saad slaps Shahzain, because he made a fuss in front of Dua. In the end, Saad, Shahzain and Shehryar were rusticated from the hostel. Since Sharq wasn’t directly involved in the incident, no action was taken against him.
The four friends now go on to lead their separate lives. Shahzain doesn’t show up for his exams and slowly transforms into an angry young man. Saad is confused between choosing Army or Medical as his profession but ultimately joins army after finding Dua submitting her application at the same college where he went. Later they meet at a park by accident. Dua softens up when she overhears him scolding his pet Zoro for running after her.
Shahzain and Shehryar then visit Saad, wanting to reconcile but Saad humiliates the two and ask them to leave. Saad later departs for PMA (Pakistan Military Academy). Upon arriving at PMA, Saad meets Gulzar Hussain and develops a good friendship with him.
On the other hand, Shahzain gets married to Rani. Shahzain only invites Shariq and Shehryar for his wedding yet gets angry when he hears the two talking about Saad. Shariq and Shrehyar leave realizing that Shahzain only viewed them as commodities and not friends.
In their next meeting Saad and Dua were confronted by Raheel (Dua’s cousin). Dua walks off angrily and goes home. Raheel proposes to Dua for marriage but Dua refuses and tells her father to trust her that Saad is just a friend. She then tells Saad she won’t contact him until they both establish their careers. Raheel’s parents then invite Dua’s parents and insist on their marriage but Dua’s father refuses. On the way home, Dua’s parents have a road accident. Dua’s father passes away and her mother becomes disabled. Her cousin blackmails her into marrying him as he finds out she is adopted. Dua agrees but then expose him in front of his parents. Dua and her mother shift to Abbottabad to live near her medical college. Saad is shown to pass out of PMA with a sword of honour. Later he finds about Dua’s father.
Shahzain is shown to be contesting in the by elections. Shariq’s YouTube
channel has been so well established that he is offered a job as a news anchor at a well-established channel. He accepts the job after declining at first and selects Ramsha (a former news reporter who became friends with Shariq) as producer of his show.
Shahzain wins his elections and becomes an MNA. Shariq achieves success as a news anchor. After passing out from PMA, Saad starts his army duties and visits Dua. He helps Dua in setting up her new home. They grow closer to each other and eventually meet each other’s parents. Saad starts planning his wedding and bumps into Shahzain while completing a wedding-related task. They both hug each other and reconcile their differences.
Meanwhile, Shehryar is appointed as an Assistant Commissioner and works with Shariq to help free one of their college friends who has been wrongly imprisoned due to a mafia gang. Shariq and Shehryar manage to successfully free him. All the four friends get together for Saad’s wedding and are seen teasing Saad. On the night of the wedding, it is revealed that Dua has been appointed as an army doctor and walks down the aisle in her uniform leaving Saad in awe.
