The story of the film revolves around two brothers, Ravi (Sailesh Kumar) and Mohan (Ashok Kumar), who live with their mother (Nirupa Roy) and sister (Naaz) in a small town. While Ravi is a sincere and hardworking police officer, Mohan is a notorious criminal who uses his charm and cunning to rob people. Despite his criminal activities, Mohan is very popular among the people because of his friendly and amicable nature.

One night, Mohan gets involved in a robbery and murder case and is arrested by his own brother Ravi. Ravi is torn between his duty as a police officer and his love for his brother. Mohan pleads innocence and claims that he has been framed in the case. Ravi wants to believe his brother, but the evidence against him is too strong to ignore. Meanwhile, Mohan's girlfriend Lata (Ragini) also believes in his innocence and tries to help him prove it.

As the investigation progresses, more and more evidence comes to light, and Ravi finds himself in a dilemma. He doesn't want to believe that his brother is a criminal, but at the same time, he cannot ignore the evidence against him. The tension between the two brothers and their conflicting emotions provide the backbone of the film's narrative.
