Ajay and Tara, the lovebirds, toil and moil round the clock for a good harvest to pay the debt. The panchayat urge them to get married. But. Fate had something else in store for them. Madan and Princess Saroja, who had plotted against Ajay, set fire to the harvest.

Ajay and Tara abandoning the wedding ceremony along with the villagers, rush to the fields to combat the inferno. Ajay fighting valiantly against the goondas is knocked unconscious and loses memory Tara, trapped in the fire, is blinded. They get separated.
