Amiya Chakravarty directs this melodrama about Meena (Geeta Bali) -- an independent lass who rebels against an arranged marriage, leaves her father's house, and sets out to start a girls' school even though the local zamindar is strongly opposed to such an endeavor. The landlord's evil son Bipin (Sajjan), in particular, hates the school as much as he lusts for Meena. Later, Meena hires Shanti Kumar Majumdar (Sohan) thinking that the applicant, based on the name, is a women. Shanti, not only is not a man, but a terrifically good-looking unmarried one to boot. Soon, rumors spread by Bipin threaten not only their fledgling love, but also the school itself.
