Dilip Kumar makes his feature film debut with this musical romance directed by Amiya Chakravarty. An old man has two marriageable daughters named Rama (Shamim) and Renu (Mridula). When the millionaire scion Narendra (Aga Jaan), who is slated to marry Rama, disguises himself to take a peak at his future bride, he mistakes Renu for Rama, and the two fall in love. When the mistake is discovered after the wedding, Renu curses God and is kicked out the house for heresy. She meets a wandering musician named Jagdish (Kumar), before returning home to learn that her sister is pregnant and deathly ill. They are faced with the stark choice of saving the life of the mother or the fetus, until Renu makes up with God, prompting a miracle to occur.
