Saroop (Nandrekar) is a young innocent man who gets lost in romantic thoughts when he hears a Sadhu singing a love-song (prayer) to God. The holy man asks him to attend the Janamasthami fair. Through circumstances beyond his control he gets arrested for loitering and is put in jail. He is made to work in the garden area of the wardens house, where he meets Durga (Bimla Kumari), the wardens daughter. A prison riot occurs and Saroop is injured.
He is brought into the house by Durga and her friend Shanta (Sitara Devi). The attending doctor is Shantas father, Doctor Hansraj. Saroop is freed from jail, and over several meetings Durga and Saroop fall in love. However, Durgas marriage gets fixed with Ranjit (K. N.
Singh) and Saroop is helpless. Ranjit has spurned his old flame Kammo (Yasmin), who is angry at the rebuff. Durga had been married off as a child, but it is believed that her boy-groom is dead. Ranjit has spread stories of her being a child-widow, in order to be the only one willing enough to marry her. On the day of the marriage, Kammo shoots Ranjit, and the Sadhu informs Dr.
Hansraj that Saroop is his long-lost son who was married to Durga. Finally, Durga and Saroop get together again.
