Mohabbatein is a saga of love stories that speaks the devinity of love. It revolves around a love despising man's surrender before a man, who adores love. Amitabh Bachchan is a strict, stone-hearted disciplinarian principal of a school. He does not believe in love and thinks that if one has to be successful in life, he or she has to shun love. Three young students Uday Chopra, Jugal Hansraj and Jimmy Shergil join the school and soon fall in love with Shamita Shetty, Kim Sharma and Preeti Jhangiani respectively. But they are frightened of the consequenses and keep their feelings in their heart. Sharukh Khan, a strong advocate of love joins the school as a music teacher and encourages the trio to shed their fear and exhibit their valour in love. Soon the three students discover that Shahrukh is the ex-student of the school, who was expelled from it because he was in love with Aishwarya Rai, Amitabh Bachchan's daughter. Not only this, Aishwarya had to commit suicide. The three students defy discipline of the school and openly exhibit their love. This creates tension and friction between Amitabh and Shahrukh. How Shahrukh succeeds in bringing a change in the school and how he changes Amitabh is the crux of the story.
