Guru (Yogesh), an unemployed youth is a carefree guy. He meets Priya (Aindrita) in a temple and instantly falls for her. Priya is the sister of rich industrialist Nanda (Prakash) who is extremely possessive about her. Knowing his adamant attitude, Guru approaches Nanda and asks for his sister's hand. Enraged upon his daring, Nanda kicks him out of the house. But Guru silently woos Priya and both fall in love. Nanda uses his money power to break this alliance in several attempts but fails. Later Guru takes up a challenge to win over Priya using his money power and succeeds.
