The story begins from the palace of Maharaj Chatrapal Singh (Shammi Kapoor) of Ramgarh state. Maharaj Chatrapal is very strict ruler, where even is son Yuvraj (Rishi Kapoor) has to call him Maharaj and his mother Maharani. In a life of luxuty Yuvraj feels suffocated. The Yuvraj wants to see the world beyond the gates of palace, thus one fine day he runs away from the palace, with his friend cum aide Gulshan (Shakti Kapoor).

On reaching Bombay he starts working as on ordinary waiter in a restaurant, while living in an ordinary basti. In the basti one Lehna Singh (Joginder) who runs a desi liquor bar is a curse to the people of basti. Yuvraj puts Lehna Singh on the right track by forcing him to close the desi liquor bar. Because of this act and his goodness he starts ruling the heart of people of basti. They start calling him Rajoo with love.

The hotel Rajoo is working belongs to Sethi (Prem Chopra) whose daughter Anita (Madhoo) is working for rehabilitation of drug addicts, Rajoo starts helping her in this good work. Anit's one and only weakness is she hates people who lie. Rajoo hiding his identity starts sending love letters to Anita as one of her well-wishers.

The story takes a twist as Sethi wants Anita to get married Jimmy (Mohnish Behl) son of Narang (Tej Sapru). Anita is dead against this marriage as she realises she has fallen in love with waiter Rajoo. Insulted Jimmy buys the land on which Anita's Drug rehabilitation centre is built and threaten to get it vacated or else she pays rupees five lakhs for it.

Under pressure her father Sethi refuses to help her.
