Radhey Mohan is a street-side Romeo with a gem of a heart. He is known for bashing up goons to help the repressed and less fortunate. Despite being an ex-student, Radhey hangs around with his friends outside his college and rags new students. In the bunch of new students he rags, one of his victims is Nirjara, a traditional Brahmin girl. Radhey falls for Nirjara's simplicity and her grace. Hopelessly in love with her, he dreams of marrying her one day. When he expresses his love to Nirjara, she refuses him outright. One day Radhey saves Nirjara's elder sister from adversity. Following this incident Nirjara's misconceptions about Radhey clear up and she develops a soft corner for him. Just when Nirjara reciprocates his love, a gang of thugs attacks Radhey. He loses his mind and is admitted to an ashram where, it is hoped, the traditional means of treatment might have a therapeutic effect on him. But Nirjara's memories haunt Radhey and he makes several efforts to escape. He is arrested and imprisoned in an asylum.
