Raju (Shashi Kapoor) and Guddi (Sulakshana Pandit) are childhood friends and neighbors, who are virtually inseparable. Raju's father is arrested after a dramatic police chase for breaking, entering and theft, resulting in their separation. Guddi grows up to be a professional stage singer and dancer, while Raju grows up to be a card-sharp and a thief. Years later, both Raju (now called Chander) and Guddi (now called Seema) meet and fall in love with each other, unaware that they were childhood friends. While Seema is on her way to her birthplace for religious reasons, Chander too is headed that way, to get himself arrested so that he can be jailed for a motive, that gets him a hefty sum of money from a gangster.
