She is the 'Sutradhar' of this story. A close friend of Ria. Great admirer of Rahul as a husband. Legal Advisor to Rishi's firm and Sameer's fiancÉ.
She is the one who has observed every character very closely and is able to make judgments.... She is saddened at Ria's decision to leave her husband. She feels that the best interest of Ria lies with her staying with Rahul. She sympathizes with Rahul and is upset that her fiancÉ is taking up Ria's unjust cause.
At a point of time she is at crossroads but ultimately decides to side with Rahul against her own best friend as well as her fiancÉ.

Does he comprehend that he could loose Natasha in the process and back out or on the contrary he is confident that he will manage to convince Natasha as well to support him leaving Rahul alone...
UNS is an Arabic word meaning Love, affection, passion. Today when live-in relationships, Divorces, Broken Families are applauded. In this world where marriage happen and break like Instant Coffee, Instant Food, Instant Polaroid Photo, Instant one day Cricket matches. Is Institution of Marriage still relevant? Are marriages still pious and constitute important fabric of the society? Does a child need love of both the parents to grow naturally? In short, is Love pertinent? Or for that matter is Unns pertinent?
Unns...is a story narrated by Natasha (Juhi Babbar), about her close friend Ria (Rituparna Sengupta) who gets married to Rahul (Sanjay Kapoor) on a rebound. Rahul, an ideal husband truly loves his wife. Unfortunately Ria is unable to reciprocate Rahul's love in the same way as he does.
Ria's first love, Rishi (Sudhanshu Pandde) is a advertising Tycoon who she really loved once upon a time. Though Rishi too loved her but, they could not get married.
Succumbing to her consciences, Ria deliberately starts picking up fights with Rahul and one day tells Rahul that she has decided to end her marriage. Rahul is shattered. Natasha's boyfriend Sameer (Aman Verma) who is a lawyer, helps Ria. Natasha understands that Ria cannot get a better husband than Rahul and discourages her from divorce. But Ria is adamant.
Rahul himself, a product of a broken family, and the one who probably nursed a desire to keep his family always happy, decides not to let go Ria and wants to save his marriage. Natasha stands against her own boyfriend Sameer as well as Ria and helps Rahul in this process.
Will Rahul be able to win back his wife or will he give up and resign to the fate?? What role does Rishi play in this drama?? Will this conflict affect Natasha and Sameer's relationship?? All this and more can be seen in Unns.
