Although Karan and Kishan have been friends for years, they have grown apart and have little in common. The widower Karan is a poor mechanic who lives in a humble house in the countryside. Kishan is a rich man with a vast business empire and little time for old friends. However, when Karan prepares to work abroad and earn more money, he turns to Kishan for help. Kishan lets Karan's daughter Suman (Bhagyashree) stay at his house as he cannot turn down his old friend's request and Suman comes to live with his family. At first, country girl Suman is ill at ease in the huge mansion. She is befriended by Kishan's son Prem (Salman Khan), who assures her that he has no romantic interest in her and that a boy and a girl can be platonic friends. The pair share outings and confidences and all seems to be going well.

Prem takes Suman to a party organised by some of his rich friends. They humiliate Suman and accuse her of scheming to marry Prem. Suman leaves in tears and distances herself from Prem. At that point, Prem realises that he has fallen in love with her. With the aid of his mother (who likes the unassuming Suman) and his comic friend Manohar, Prem sets out to win Suman's heart. He succeeds, but Kishan balks at the romance, as he does not want his son to marry a poor nobody. He prepares to send Suman home in disgrace. At this unfortunate moment, Karan returns from abroad. Kishan accuses him of plotting to set up Prem and Suman. Karan and Kishan quarrel, and Karan and Suman return to their village humiliated.

Prem refuses to accept the separation. He defies his father and is disinherited. He goes to Suman's village and begs to be allowed to marry her. Karan, angered by Kishan's accusations, says that he will allow the marriage on one condition: Prem must prove that he can support his wife by his own efforts. Prem then works as a truck driver and laborer in the nearby quarry. At the end of the month, when Prem is ready with the required money and comes to win over his lady's father, he is ambushed by his enemies. They nearly succeed in killing him, but he survives. Karan harshly dismisses Prem's efforts, but Prem's stoic determination melts his heart, and he agrees to let Suman marry Prem. When Kishan arrives at Karan's village, Prem confronts Jeevan. Prem, Karan, and Kishan kill all of Prem's enemies, thus saving Suman. By the end of the movie, the estrangement between Karan and Kishan has ended, too. Prem and Suman live happily ever after.
