Rai Bahadur finalises his daughter Madhu's engagement with advocate Vinod. Police Inspector Vijay's mother, incidently, comes to Rai Bahadur for Madhu's hand for her son on the same day. Rai Bahadur rejects her offer. Madhu, provoked by her father's misbehaviour, fights back vigorously. Rai Bahadur loses his temper and beats her up in her bedroom. Vijay gets wild and decides to face Rai Bahadur come-what-may.

Shaken by the thought of possible tragic consequences, RaiBahadur changes his mind and decides to allow Madhu to get married with Vijay. But this irritates Vinod and he decides to stop this by hook or by crook.

Next day- Rai Bahadur is announced 'missing'. Everybody is shocked.
