His poetic letters describing himself and his rural environment bore Chandra but intrigue her younger sister Neelu (Nargis) who replies on her sister's behalf. Neelu and Raj fall in love, although he believes her to be Chandra. However, Raj's diagnosis of tuberculosis prompts him to conspire with his doctor and friend, Kailash (Pran), to spare Neelu the loss of a dying love.
