Mirza Yusuf Changezi (Bharat Bhushan) and Jahan Ara (Mala Sinha) have been good friends since childhood. Things are not quite the same as they grow up, as Jahan Ara's father is none other than Emperor Shah Jahan, and men are not permitted to meet with the princess under any circumstances. However, Jahan and Mirza do meet secretly and promise to marry each other. Misfortune visits the emperor, when his wife, Mumtaz Mahal (Achala Sachdev), passes away. The emperor gets deeply devastated, and, still mourning his wife's death, he pledges to build a memorial in her name (which would subsequently be called Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders on Earth). At her deathbed, Mumtaz makes Jahan promise that she will take care of her father, which she promises to do. This responsibility makes her sacrifice her love for Mirza, who is heartbroken and continues to believe that Jahan will sooner or later reunite with him.

  • Music

    The soundtrack of the film contains songs composed by Madan Mohan, while the lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan. The songs of the film became popular and still remain so. The album made an attempt of reviving singing career of Talat Mahmood over rising career of Mohammad Rafi.

    Besides these songs, there are two more songs which were not released in the film. The song "Tum Juda Hokar Hame Kuch Aur Paare Ho Gaye" by Talat Mahmood was released on the CD Tere Bagair by his son Sanjeev Kohli. Another song "Kabhee Aankhon Mein Teri" sung by he four sisters Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar and Meena Mangeshkar was neither filmed nor released on disc. Arguably, it might be the only song sung by all the Mangeshkar sisters.
