Lagan deals about The Principal (played by Nemo) of a Music College for girls, quite pleased with himself for the arrangements made for the annual social, finds his apple-cart upset at the eleventh hour; not knowing what to do, he is at his wits end, when contrary to expectations, Kusum Kumari, (played by Kanan) a student of the college, much against the Principals wishes, plays a gramophone-record, which astonishingly solves the knotty problem. An unknown and unclaimed poet is the composer of the beautiful song. The ever-alert Principal seizes the opportunity and brings this poet (played by Saigal) from his native-village. The poet chooses Kusum Kumari to sing at the annual social of Music College and coaches her.
Kusum Kumari justifies the selection and progresses to the full satisfaction of her tutor. Subconsciously the poet is being drawn closer and closer and closer by the magnetic charm of this beautiful and talented girl. The annual event comes off very successful. Praises and honors are showered upon the girl. The poet goes unrecognized. The eccentric and selfish poet hears of the coming event. He rushes back. He Protests vehemently, and in the protests, he burst out with his ardent love for the girl. The girl is painfully surprised. She had loved and respected him as her tutor and guide. The poet is frantic. What does the girl do? What can she do? The marriage takes place. The girl lives like a queen. The husband adores her. Is the girl happy or is she like a bird in a gilded cage?
