Chandra (Dilip Kumar, a young lawyer, lives in a well-to-do joint family with his parents, sister Radhika (Manorama) and sister's husband, Chaman (Gope). Chaman is made to do all the household chores as he lives on the sustenance provided by his wife's family. When Chaman is insulted by his mother-in-law, Radhika steps in and walks out of the house with her husband. They start a small business outside the city and soon start doing well. Here, Chandra on a visit to his sister meets Roopa (Mumtaz Shanti), who lives a poor lifestyle with her older unemployed brother Moti (Jeevan) and a younger brother Gulab, studying in school. To make a living, Roopa runs a school. Chandra and Roopa fall in love and are married despite their financial differences. However, the in-laws soon start taunting Roopa about her previous poor state and slowly make her life miserable.
