Seeta and Geeta (Malini dual role) are twin girls who were separated at birth. Geeta, a feisty girl is raised in a poor neighborhood and is a street performer, while Seeta is raised by her cruel aunt, "Chachi" (Manorama) and meek uncle. Her aunt treats Seeta like a servant, despite the fact that the family is living off her late parents' money. Seeta's only consolation is her old grandmother. One day, Seeta decided life is not worth living and runs away to commit suicide. She is saved, but is mistaken for her identical twin Geeta, and is taken to Geeta's home. Meanwhile, Seeta's aunt and uncle are frantically searching for her, and ironically, they find Geeta. They attempt to force Geeta to go with them, but, using some of her clever tricks, escapes both them and the police who have been searching for her. She then meets Ravi (Sanjeev Kumar) and though he also mistakes her for Seeta, she goes home with him. Ravi is surprised by this "Seeta" and the Seeta he had met previously. Geeta realizes the cruelty that Seeta has been living under and vows to teach her aunt a lesson. Meanwhile, the real Seeta is living in Geeta's house. Her surrogate mother has attributed her new docile attitude to shock. Here, Seeta meets Raka (Dharmendra), Geeta's friend and fellow performer. Raka is also surprised by "Geeta's" sudden gentle nature and desire to do housework. When he tried to coax her into performing, she of course is unable to do so. Ravi meanwhile falls in love with Geeta. At home, Geeta begins to set everything on a proper course. She resumes control of the money, and restore her grandmother to the head of the household, where she belongs. Meanwhile Raka begins to fall in love with Seeta. Trouble begins brewing when Chachi's brother comes to visit and sees the real Seeta in a marketplace. He follows her and he discovers the truth and it leads to a showdown in the villains' den with happy endings and marriage.
