Devrani revolved around the story of the rich Nanavati family based in AhmedabadGujarat,India. Devkiben is a single mother of six sons and a daughter (who lives in Canada with her in-laws). The five eldest daughter-in-laws Manjula, Parul, Alpa, Jalpa and Rajeshwari are evil and want an uneducated woman to be the wife of the family's youngest son Mohan, so they do not have to give Mohan and his wife the share from the family's money. They marry Mohan to Bhakti who, although is uneducated and parent-less (her maternal grandmother raised her), is full up good deeds. The eldest daughter-in-laws play many dirty pranks on Bhakti, but are unsuccessful most of the time. They eventually start to like Bhakti.

Then Padmini is introduced. She loves Mohan and kidnaps the pregnant Bhakti so as to marry Mohan, but she is caught by the police. Bhakti dies giving birth to a mentally disabled daughter, Astha.

Seventeen years later[edit]Edit

Astha is raised by all her aunties with love and care. Raj then comes into the story, whom a priest says his first wife will die. Raj and Shikha (Padmini's daughter, adopted by the Nanavati family) love each other, but cannot marry as Raj's first wife will die. They create a plan so as Raj marries Astha, as she is mentally ill and won't matter if she dies. After the marriage, Astha shows no signs of death, so Raj, with the help of Shikha and his aunt Rasila plan to murder Astha and 'get-it-over-and-done-with', Astha miraculously survives, and the five daughter-in-laws attempt to seek revenge from Raj and Rasila, and they succeed.

Then Mohan marries Vrinda so ace woman who the Navavati bahus think is here to steal the money. They eventually realise that Vrinda is a nice woman. Then comes another twist; the Nanavatis' only daughter's family comes to steal the money from the Nanavati house. They kidnap Aastha; but she is rescued by Vrinda; and the kidnappers are jailed. The story ends with the Nanavati family celebrating Vrinda's pregnancy.
