Storyline

Raasaiyya is a servant and protector in the household of Shyamsunder. He was placed there by his mother, Madhavi, who feared he would follow in his fathers' footprints as a thief. She desired that he would be brought up to be a decent man, and serve Shyamsunder all his life. Shyamsunder had owed a great favor to Madhavi, for saving his family honor. Anita, Shyamsunder's granddaughter, arrives and fears that Raasaiyya is trying to usurp the family property. She is rude towards him, and causes him to return to his mother. She learns that she misunderstood him, calls him back and falls in love with him. As they are preparing to tell her grandfather, he tells her that her marriage has been arranged with someone else.
