Plot summary

Devdhar (Rishi Kapoor) is a poor orphan who in his childhood had a magnetic friendship with Manorama who is the only daughter of the rich and powerful Thakur. The benevolent Thakur helped Devdhar go to the city for higher studies. After eight years, Devdhar comes back to his village and Manorama is no longer a young girl. After meeting her, Devdhar falls in love. Due to family status difference, he is unable to express his love for her.

A chain of events leads to Manorama being married to a rich and handsome Thakur; unfortunately, her husband dies the next day of marriage and she becomes a widow. Her elder brother-in-law rapes her causing her to return to her parental home. When Devdhar learns of the situation, he takes it upon himself to rebuild Manorama's life and bring a smile back to her face. Devdhar is adamant to revive her faith in life and love. Little does he know, that in doing so, he would have to face the wrath of the powerful Thakurs, armed with age-old traditions and customs in their favor.
