Shankar (Dharmendra) and Bhawariya (Sharmila Tagore) are childhood lovers who have been parted by unfortunate circumstances. Shankar's cousin Suresh is an advocate. Matchmaker Ram comes up with marriage proposals for both the cousins. Following family traditions, it is decided that the boys will meet the respective brides by proxy. Suresh falls in love with Madhumati (Bhawariya). He cooks up a wicked plot. He writes two letters to each of the families due to which an innocent and somewhat less educated Shankar is badly treated by his parents. One day accidentally Shankar comes to know that Madhumati is Bhawariya, the girl whom he used to love. So also, Bhawariya's brother, a handwriting expert comes to know of Suresh's wicked plan. Bbhawariya's brother asks Suresh to accept his guilt before Ashok's parents presuming that it is Suresh sitting on chair, but it happens to be Ashok who listens this and comes to know of everything. In a rift between Shankar and Suresh, Suresh dies accidentally, for which Shankar is held the culprit. Madumati who is determined to see her husband's murderer hanged, changes her words and saves Shankar.

The movie ends without Madumati ever knowing that Shankar is her childhood lover.
