The Sardar takes good care of Raju and treats him with honour. Sardar's daughter Kammo (Padmini) falls in love with Raju. Kammo and Sardar convince Raju of how they are good bandits who are making sure that wealth is equally distributed amongst people.

One of the bandits, Raka (Pran), kills the Sardar and takes over; he and wishes to forcibly wed Kammo. When Raju tells all truth to police they decide to confront and kill the bandits.
