Raj Raibahadur (Raj Kapoor) is sent to work at the Saraswati Dam. One day his widowed father comes to meet him and expresses his late mother’s wish to get him married to the daughter of a family friend. Raj embarks on fulfilling his mother’s wish and writes a letter to the young woman, Chandra. While Chandra ignores it, her sister Neelu (Nargis) replies as Chandra. The exchange of letters continues, but Neelu does not disclose the truth and the two eventually fall in love. Disaster strikes, however, when Raj is diagnosed with tuberculosis, the disease which also killed his mother. Raj intentionally starts keeping a distance from Neelu and also encourages her to marry her physician friend. What does fate have in store for Raj? Does Neelu ever learn the reason for the change in Raj’s behaviour?
