Raju is an idler always taken to task by his wife Bhago for being unable to provide for his family. His friend Inder Pal persuades him to shift to Delhi to seek gainful employment. Meanwhile, Narinder Singh, the Prince of a small state decides to roam the streets of Delhi incognito to escape his princely duties. All three arrive in Delhi on the same train. Raju and Narinder leave their luggage in the cloak room as they embark on their journeys. When they find suitable accomodations, they send for their luggage, and the bearers deliver the luggage to the wrong owners.

Now burdened with the royal luggage, Raju is mistaken for Narinder Singh. He is welcomed with great honours and begins to enjoy the luxuries showered upon him. The prince, on the other hand, after receiving Raju’s minimal baggage, meets with an accident and is taken in by Inder. At Inder’s residence, Narinder meets the beautiful Rani and falls madly in love with her. The prince’s scheming cousin sends Shyam Sunder and his gang to assassinate Narinder. While the incognito prince enjoys his romance with Rani, Raju is kidnapped by Sunder’s men.

As news of the royal kidnapping start making the rounds, the real prince is highly amused by the events. He decides to set things right, and leaving Rani behind, rushes back to his palace to sort out the confusion.
