But Murli Manohar and his wife were in for a big surprise when they came to know that Ratan Khanna had made a will of his property not on his only son and their children Ram but on Ram's wife and their children's name and till his son grew big and mature enough the power of attorney was given to their Diwan.

Now Murli Manohar and his wife had only one alternative to get the property and that is to wait until Ram grew up and to get him married to such a girl who would dance on the time of Murli Manohar and his wife Maya Devi.

And when Ram grew up as a handsome young man and completed his studies from America and returned they sent a girl by the name of Mona to lure Ram but nobody can change one's destiny as it is, Mona unknowingly mistook someone else for Ram and started fooling him.
