The plot is simple: Mansi (Rai) is the daughter of Tarababu, a poor but influential singer and musician. Manav (Khanna) is the eldest son and heir of the Mehtas, a wealthy and Westernized family. After seeing Mansi while photographing India, which he is visiting for the first time, Manav [[StalkingIsLove follows her around and photographs her.]] When Manav is caught and Tarababu confronts the Mehtas, they take the opportunity to use his influence on the local politicians to help them secure a land deal, buttering him up while secretly looking down on him for being poor.
