The king in Kumarpur has two wives, Dilbahar (Sushila) and Navbahar (Zilloo). Both the wives are constantly at loggerheads with each other, vying for their husband's affection. This conflict is worsened when a fakir predicts that the King's heir will be borne by Navbahar. Hearing this, an outraged Dilbahar attempts to seduce General Adil, (Prithviraj Kapoor) but does not succeed. Shocked and hurt by his rejection, she lashes out by imprisoning General Adil and sending his young daughter Alam Ara (Zubeida) away on exile, but little does she know that the girl will return.
