Pyarelal (Raj Kapoor), a simple-minded and extremely naive young man, who was orphaned at birth, and now lives with Fatima (Lalita Pawar), a Muslim landlady who treats him like her son. Once, he sets on a journey and meets a young woman with whom he falls in love, Kamini Gupta (Saira Banu). Sir Mayadas (Kamal Kapoor), the person who brought her up happens to be Pyarelal's real father. All of a sudden, Pyarelal is arrested on the charge of murder. No one believes that a harmless man like him could commit a crime, let alone kill. However, Pyarelal openly admits in court that he is indeed guilty, and demands capital punishment for it. The reason he does that is unveiled after several secrets, later on.
