Sunil Mehra (played by Manoj Kumar) completes his medical studies and becomes a doctor. He is kidnapped by dacoits in the Himalayas, harassed, and left badly hurt. Phoolwa, a villager (played by Mala Sinha), finds and takes care of him until he becomes fit. Both fall in love but her dacoit father Lakhan Singh played by Jayant comes in their way. Secondly Sunil is already engaged to Neeta played by Shashikala. He then leaves for his home in the city.
He returns to the Himalayas to help poor people who do not have proper facilities and or medical care. Villagers resist his arrival as they do not trust his modern medicines and only believe in local healers. Also, Lakhan Singh again an again interrupts in his activities. Worried for him, Sunil's family sends his fiancée Neeta (played by Shashikala) to get him back. Sunil in turn asks Neeta, who is also a doctor, to stay there with him.
