Sushil Kumar Varma and school teacher Maya Saxena meet each other and fell in love.

Now their only problem was a house....

Sushil thought of a solution.........

Mr. & Mrs. Gupta had two flats - one in city - the other in suburbs. Five days they used to live in the city and for two they used to go to the other apartment.

Varma manipulated with the gardener and started living in the city flat. He rang up Maya. Dinesh Bhatnagar, who had an eye on Maya, heard the talk of the couple.

Gafoor the servant also came to know that his boss Varma has arranged for the accommodation.

On the appointed day Varma was standing outside the flat and inside there wa a big flare-up between Gupta and his wife.
Gupta left the house in an angry mood.

When Varma entered the mistress of the house was present.

Dinesh Bhatnagar saw Maya inquiring about the address of the appointed flat. He immediately went to her father and told him that his daughter is on the way to the house of a stranger.

Maya's father, in search of his daughter, tried to enter the flat. Varma was on the resistance edge. The old man was furious. He went away to call police.

When Maya came out of the house she saw her father sitting on the stairs.

Mrs. Gupta and her friend Tara cried to clarify the misunderstanding of Saxena. AT that time Gafoor also entered the scene with his wife and his entire luggage. Tara gave the burqa of Mrs. Gafoor to Maya and asked her to go out.
Dinesh started following Maya. Gafoor thought that some goonda is trying to chase his wife.

The entire drama was about to come to an end when Gafoor brought Maya in burqa back. In the meanwhile Dinesh had brought the Police.

Guptaji under the influence of alcohol drove, out his wife from his house.

When police opened the door they found a knife in the hand of Guptaji. Also lying on the floor was unconscious May. Gupta was trying to cut on onion to bring her back into consciousness. Police arrested Gupta.

Maya and Varma again came to the place where they had fallen in love. Both got themselves married and proceeded to celebrate their honeymoon at Varma's office.

In the morning when the boss entered the office he saw the newly married couple.

The police was called again.
