The movie begins with a young man named Kumar (played by Rajesh Khanna) returning to his ancestral village after completing his studies. During his journey, he meets a shy and beautiful girl named Meena (played by Babita) and falls in love with her. They both arrive at the village at the same time, and Kumar seeks refuge at Meena's house. It turns out that Meena's uncle, Rai Sahab (played by I.S. Johar), is the village headman and a wealthy aristocrat. Kumar becomes close to him and soon finds out that Rai Sahab is keeping a dark secret.

As the story unfolds, Kumar learns that Rai Sahab is haunted by his past and is being blackmailed by a sinister figure named Anand (played by Manmohan Krishna).
