He is studying Medicine in the city, is in love with his childhood sweetheart, Shanta, and everyone expects them to get married soon. However, Janki does not approve of Shanta, finds her uncouth and illiterate, and instead approves of Shobha and arranges Sunil's marriage with her.

After sometime he becomes a fully qualified doctor and returns to the village to open his own dispensary. It is here that he will learn that Shanta is now married to the wealthiest man in the village, Lakshmipati, who is not only a widower, father of a deceased child, but also much older than Shanta.

Lakshmipati, a rich Zamindar, a very good man and philanthropist, became an alcoholic after a personal tragedy. His dear wife and daughter lost their lives as there were not enough medical facilities in his village. Now his life's mission was to provide the best in medical help. The hospital building was under construction and at his expenses a young bright son of his friend was studying medicine to take charge of hospital on graduation. Young doctor Sunil loves beautiful, but poor Shanta. He presents her with a pair of Kangan, the symbol of his deep love and permanent bondage. Sunil's mother Parvati frowns on this match as she wants her son to marry Shobha, rich cousin of Shanta. But Shobha is in love with Bankay, son of Hanuman, an employee of Lakshmipati. Without the knowledge of Sunil, a conspiracy is hatched. As a result, Shanta is made to go through marriage ceremony with Lakshmipati who was too drunk at the time to know what was happening. When he wakes up and knows the sordid details, he treats Shanta as a daughter, instead of wife. When doctor Sunil comes to village to take charge of the hospital, he finds Shanta married to Lakshmipati. In frustration he resigns from hospital and wants to go away..away..Shanta comes to know and she makes personal request to Sunil to stay and take up his duty as doctor. Lakshmipati comes to know about true love between Sunil and Shanta. The anguish of this young love, separated by fate, brings a new resolve in him. Sunil also comes to know that Lakshmipati and Shanta do not loved as husband and wife. Lakshmipati suggests that Shanta should remarry the man of her first choice. But Shanta is shocked at the suggestion. She cries that being a married Indian woman, she can never even think of such a possibility. On the other side Sunil is being compelled to marry Shobha. Both Sunil's mother and Shobha's mother want it. But Shobha loves Bankey… WHAT HAPPENS THEREAFTER CAN BE WITNESSED ON THE SILVER SCREEN… Adapted from the synopsis on shemaroo video movie website-
