(Certified: May 18, 1961)
Shekhar (Rajendra Kumar) lives a poor lifestyle along with his maternal uncle, Dharamdas (Dhumal); his aunt (Leela Misra); a cousin, Sita (Shubha Khote) - who is separated from her husband, Mahesh (Mehmood); and also has a sister, Gauri (Jayshree Gadkar), who had eloped with her lover and everyone believes is dead. He studies in college along with wealthy fellow collegian, Bela (B Saroja Devi). Both do not get along, but that changes when her dad Thakur comes to know about Shekhar's good character and thinks that he will be a suitable son-in-law. He approaches Dharamdas and arranges their marriage with the condition that Shekhar move in with his family, to which Dharamdas and Shekhar agree but Bela's mom (Lalita Pawar) is displeased as she would like her daughter to marry Rajan Murari (Anwar Hussain), the son of their employee, Govindram. Despite of this, the marriage does take place and Shekhar moves in, is employed by Thakur (Bipin Gupta), and the family settles down to a fairly harmonious relationship. Their idyllic lifestyle is shattered when Bela suspects, and then come across evidence that Sita and Mahesh, who are now together, have stolen her diamond necklace; that Shekhar is having an affair with a dancing girl; that he has embezzled Rs.10,000/- and had gone to an undisclosed location for 3 days. Things get even worse when Thakur meets with an accident, and subsequently passes away - paving the way for his wife to arrange her daughter's divorce and Shekhar's death.
