Gopal works as a servant with the Sharma family, which consists of Kedarnath, his wife: Shanti, daughters: Asha and Sunita, and son: Prabhat. Prabhat and Gopal are very friendly with each other. One day while playing with a loaded rifle, Prabhat accidentally shoots Gopal, and runs away, fearing that he will be arrested and sentenced to death. Gopal grows up in the Sharma family and is treated like a family member. Years later, Asha weds Suresh, who moves in with them, while Sunita becomes intimate and pregnant with Balwinder, and in order to avoid a scandal, gets married to him. Things change dramatically when Shanti's brother, Rajinder, colludes with Suresh and Balwinder to kill Kedarnath, who is rescued just in time by Gopal, who ends up in hospital. After recovering, Gopal returns home to find that Kedarnath is dead, and the family on the verge of being divided.
