Vikram (Feroz Khan) is cruel, domineering, selfish and greedy, and he maltreats everyone, from servants to his own brother Raghu. Vikram's vicious mother (Lalita Pawar) does the same.

After Vikram has a feud with a tough and smart village girl named Padma (Mala Sinha), who is the first person to ever confront him, Zamindar gets an idea of marrying Vikram and Padma. Vikram refuses, and after a series of incidents, Padma ends up getting married to Raghu instead.
