Vijay (Jeetendra), son of a poor temple sculptor and a tour guide, was a carefree young lad. One day while helping his father to guide a bunch of young women around the temple, he meets a beautiful young girl named Vidya (Rajshree). After some teasing, both fall in love.

Meanwhile, Vidya comes to know that her mother wants to sell her to a rich man as a mistress. She succeeds in escaping from her mother's house and comes to Vijay. He wants to take his father's permission to marry her but rejected as his father thinks that Vidya is a prostitute. Moreover, he thinks that Vidya couldn't stand poverty. Vijay, seeing Vidya helpless marries her anyhow with the help of his chacha (uncle)
On the other hand, a rich old gentleman wants to build a mahal of the like of ancient Indian architecture wants to fill it with ancient Indian sculptures. It is also revealed that his only daughter was kidnapped years ago by his maid and not yet found. His representative, who was a sculptor himself before he lost his hands in an accident, searches everywhere for a man to do the job.

By the time he comes back after a year, chacha dies and his father tells him that Vidya left for a rich man as she couldn't live in the poor locality. He goes there and sees her in the house of a rich man and angrily leaves. Vidya tries to explain his things, but he wouldn't listen and not even acknowledge the child in Vidya's hands.

Years pass and Vijay almost completes the job when he, at last, identifies Vidya.

After some drama, Vidya's mother comes and reveals that Vidya has been chaste all the time and that she was the actual culprit.
