During that plight, Gopal Das marries Roopa, for her property. Later, he returns and assures Shyama that he will shortly discard Roopa and marry her. Time passes, and the couple is blessed with a baby girl Rani. Due to extortion, Shyama Gopal Das seeks to kill Roopa along with the baby. Fortuitously, the child is rescued which Gopal Das hides. Years roll by, and Gopal Das marries Shyama and secretly rears Rani (Leena Chadravakar). In college, she loves a smart guy Rajesh (Jeetendra) the brother of her close friend Shobha (Aruna Irani). After completion of their education, they all back to their hometowns. Gopal Das accommodates Rani separately and comforts her with a job as an unbeknownst. Meanwhile, Rajesh & Shobha quit the house since they oppose the remarriage of their father (D.K. Sapru). At that time, Rajesh befriends with a guy Shivram (Mehmood) who rents a portion of his house. Rajesh also acquires a job at Gopal Das’s office with the help of Rani. As an anecdote, Shivram falls for Shobha and they get married. Rajesh’s presence begrudges Man Mohan (Man Mohan) the distinct relative of Shyama one that keeps a bad eye on Rani. Man Mohan shadows Gopal Das and learns the reality. Hence, he threatens Gopal Das to knot with Rani by holding a letter that he wrote long ago regarding the evil plan to slay Roopa. So, he pleads with Rajesh to break up with Rani and he does so by creating himself as an imposter. Later, Gopal Das realizes Rajesh’s honesty, divulges the actuality to Rani, unites them, and surrenders to Police. Here, fortunately, Roopa is alive. Being aware of it, Man Mohan schemes to eliminate her when Shyama dies while guarding Roopa. At last, Rajesh rescues Roopa and acquits Gopal Das. Finally, the movie ends on a happy note with the marriage of Rajesh & Rani.
