Their paths cross again when Masud fixes the fridge at Moyna’s, leading to a blossoming romance. Eventually, Masud and Moyna get married, and Masud finds a job in Malaysia to support their new life together. However, in Masud’s absence, Moyna develops an illicit relationship with Jahir, a friend of Masud who gives her gifts. Moyna flees with Jahir, only to find that he is already married. Meanwhile, Masud returns to Bangladesh to find his home due to financial difficulties. Determined to find Moyna and Jahir, Masud takes up various odd jobs, but the income is insufficient. Driven by desperation, he spends nine months digging an underground tunnel to steal money from a bank. Successfully stealing ৳340 million, Masud reveals his triumph to his ex-wife, Moyna, over a video call. The police offer a reward for information about the thief, and Moyna hands Masud over to the authorities in exchange.
