The story is about a very lovable pickpocket named Shekhar (Ashok Kumar) who becomes friends with a poor theater owner (P.F. Pithawala) whose daughter is a beautiful singer by the name of Rani (Mumtaz Shanti). In a mad fit of greed, the old man forced his daughter to dance until she was exhausted and crippled. Shekhar falls in love with Rani and sets out to steal money from the theater's current owner Indrajit, who is sort of a villain. Shekhar wants the money to pay for an operation that will let Rani walk once again. However, after a series of events, Shekar not only gets arrested, but also manages to accidentally implicate Rani as well. In the ending, everyone gets saved when it is revealed that Shekhar is in fact Indrajit's long lost son.
