Her situation is so bad that at one point, Uma attempts suicide, only to be saved at the last moment by her younger sister.

Her best friend, Asha, sees to it that Uma receives the money she needs to cure her crippling disease. Asha is head over heels in love with Ashok.

When Asha's best friend Sunita finds out, the two of them concoct a devious plan. Asha's dilemma is a common one.

To protect Asha's honor, Sunita agrees to take on her greatest role. Impersonate her best friend at the couple's first meeting so that Suresh will cancel the upcoming marriage.
