On his journey to the city, Ravi meets Mohini (Tina Munim) on the train and instantly falls in love with her. Upon arriving in Bombay, he discovers that life in the city is tough and that finding work is not easy. Meanwhile, he also learns that Mohini is the daughter of the wealthy Seth Karamchand (Pran Sikand), who does not approve of Ravi due to his low social status.
