An impecunious poet, Parwana, runs away from home in company with his pal Jagu to join a theatrical company. On the way they come across a gypsy camp and Jagu succeeds in picking up Koel, a gypsy dancer, as his sweetheart. Parwana and Jagu soon cross swords with Khanna of Khanna Theatres whose main attraction is Bijli, a beautiful and temperamental dancer. Bijli is attracted by Parwana's poetry and physique and we soon see Parwana. Jagu and Koel working in Khanna Theatres.
Parwana and Bijli begin to love each other and Khanna doesn't like the look of things being himself in love with Bijli. Things soon reach a show-down stage and Bijli walks out of Khanna Theatres arm-in-arm with Parwana and his stooges. The new team tries to start its own theatre business but the love-stricken Khanna becomes vindictive and with his influence and money hounds them out from place to place till Parwana and Bijli are ruined and heartbroken. In a desperate attempt to save Paiwana's poetic soul, Bijli, sacrificing her love for him, compromises matters with Khanna who helps to put Parwana on the stage once again. But, Parwana needs more than mere success to feel happy and very soon he returns heartbroken to his parental home, a sadder but wiser man.
Now Parwana dedicates himself to national service and we soon come to the climax in which Khanna realizing the intensity of Bijli's love for Parwana gracefully gives her up and all rush to a public meeting for their individual professions and confessions. Evidently any place seems to be good enough for the Punjabis to vomit their love and a large crowd does not deter Bijli from vomiting her love for Parwana on a public platform. It ends well.
The music of the film was composed by Shyam Sunder and the songs were sung by Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar.
