Plot[edit]

The Maharaja is eager to see his foreign-returned son, Bhanu Pratap, who will eventually take over the reign of the region. When he finally gets to see his son, he is shocked to see that the crown prince is in fact a "clown" prince. He openly shows his disgust and disappointment, and decides to continue to rule. Bhanu Pratap and his friend, Kapil, decide to dress incognito and mingle with the general public and find out if there is anyone conspiring to dethrone the king. What they find out will change their lives, and endanger the lives of their loved ones as well.

The antagonist Pran, who is the brother of prince's stepmother kills the tribal king and incriminates the prince of the murder, compelling his daughter Princess Sangeeta to avenge her father's death. The Maharaja however, assures her that justice will be done the next day. The prince escapes the palace with the help of his friend and disguises himself as Bhagat Ram, while romancing the unaware princess. Finally, the Prince manages to get proof of his innocence to the Maharaja, but Pran imprisons the king by binding him on his throne far away from public view and ask the princess to avenge her father's death by shooting the prince with a bow and arrow and accidentally also reveals that the prince was disguised as Bhagatram. The princess, though not happy to shoot the love of her life, lifts the bow to shoot the prince when all the prince's friends, nanny and well wishers attack Pran's goons, thereby rescuing the Maharaja in the process. The Prince and Pran had a fight at the end and he hands over Pran to the princess. The princess shoots Pran, the real murderer of her father. The Prince and the Princess get married and live happily ever after.
