'Never do anything in the dark, which cannot be faced in the daylight',an
advice often repeated but seldom heeded. Yet this is a human failing which
claims many innocent lives, bringing in its trail untold mystery and suffering.
Such was the story of Jamuna (Sulochana) and Ramprakash Shukla (Balraj Sahani)
who kept their marriage a close secret, a ceremony veild by the covers of
darkness. But when daylight came it was too late, as their relationship has born
a child Ravi (Dharmendra), born out of wedlock. Years pass and into Ravi's life
walks in Kanchan (Asha Parekh).
