When a leopard attacks Raju (Rajesh Khanna), four elephants save this only son of wealthy parents. When Raju's family strikes bad times, his only assets are his friends the elephants. Raju meets and falls in love with Tanu (Tanuja), but her father is against their love because of Raju's poor financial background. Against her father's wishes, Tanu marries Raju and gives birth to a baby boy. The elephants and the boy become very close, but Tanu is afraid the elephants may kill her son. This fear creates conflict between Raju and Tanu, causing them to separate. Thankfully, the elephants help them to re-unite in the knot of love.
