The plot revolves around Ganga (Reena Roy), a young school teacher from a small village who falls in love with Suraj (Shashi Kapoor), a wealthy businessman. The couple gets married against the wishes of Suraj's father, who disapproves of Ganga's lower social status. However, their happiness is short-lived as a tragedy strikes them soon after their marriage.

Suraj's father dies in a car accident, leaving behind a debt-ridden business for Suraj to manage. Ganga, being the supportive wife, stands by her husband and helps him through this difficult phase.
