The film revolves around the story of Ravi (Navin Nischol), a highly ambitious young man who is determined to become a successful businessman. However, his life takes an unexpected turn when he falls in love with Vandana (Yogeeta Bali), the daughter of a poor laundryman.

Ravi's father, Din Dayal (Om Prakash), runs a successful business and wants his son to take over the reins. However, Ravi has his heart set on making it big on his own. He leverages the resources of his father's company to start his own factory for producing shoes. However, his business venture is not doing well and he faces financial troubles.

Vandana, who is aware of Ravi's financial struggles, offers to help him by pawning her mother's jewelry to raise money. Ravi is grateful to Vandana for her help, and they soon fall in love. However, their happiness is short-lived as Ravi's father disapproves of his son's relationship with a poor girl.

To make matters worse, Ravi's factory catches fire, and he loses all his savings. Desperate for money, Ravi turns to crime and becomes a wanted criminal. He changes his name to "Parwana" and goes into hiding.

Meanwhile, Vandana's father dies, leaving her and her mother penniless. Vandana is forced to work as a maid to support herself and her mother. One day, she meets Amit (Amitabh Bachchan), who is a writer and falls in love with him.

The story takes a dramatic turn when Ravi, now known as Parwana, is hired by Din Dayal to kidnap Vandana. However, during the kidnapping, Ravi discovers that Vandana is the girl he loves. He decides to let her go and leaves his life of crime behind.

In the end, Ravi reunites with Vandana and they get married. Din Dayal realizes his mistakes and accepts Vandana as his daughter-in-law.

The film is known for its catchy music, including the hit song "O Jangal Ke Raja". The performances by the lead actors, Navin Nischol, Yogeeta Bali, and Amitabh Bachchan, were highly appreciated.

Overall, Parwana is a gripping tale of love, ambition, and betrayal that captures the struggles and triumphs of its characters.
