Mohan Sharma (Tarun Bose) a successful businessman in Bombay, marries late in life, and is leading a happy married life. Unfortunately, his wife dies during childbirth leaving behind a young daughter, Uma (Sharmila Tagore), who he cannot bear to see her, except when he is drunk! Naturally, the daughter grows up all by her self, traumatized and speaks to no one. As time passes, Mohan Sharma's health starts failing due to over work and alcoholism, doctors suggest change of weather, to hill-station, Mahabaleshwar.
Meanwhile, Arun (Deven Verma), son of Mohan Sharma's friend Hari Mehta and who is set to marry Uma, returns home after studying engineering abroad for five years, and joins them along with his friend, Ashok (Dharmendra), a writer and a teacher. Here things change when young Ashok enters Uma's life, but she cannot do anything to jeopardize already fragile relationship between her and her father..
