Ramdas, a poor noble soul (Gajanan Jagirdar) rears up the only daughter of his dead master away from his own home so that she may not fall into the clutches of her treacherous uncle, Bahadur Singh (K N Singh). Baby Radha grows up to be a beautiful girl (Madhubala) and falls in love with the poet Madan (Dev Anand), who happens to visit her village. 

Fate separates them and Radha is taken over by her uncle and taught to outgrow her peasant upbringing to become a swell girl. But her love for her foster father, now a dispirited rickshaw puller, flames again leading up to a climax.
