Yogeeta Bali and Dharmendra's mother persuade Neelu to play blind even when she gets back her eyesight to dissuade dharmendra to marry a down trodden village girl. They bring along a false husband of Neelu who carries her off into the clutches of prem chopra the illegitimate half brother of Dharmendra. His love interest betrays him and he gets killed.
