Raja is an orphan, separated from Seeta, his sister. Seeta has been brought up by a rickshaw driver, whereas Raja has been brought up by a doctor, who sends him to college in Bangalore, with his own son Premnath, to study law. The two boys fall in with different crowds, and Premnath becomes a gambler. He runs up large debts, which his father pays off for him, but in so-doing has to postpone his daughter's wedding, because he can no longer afford the dowry. Raja comes to the rescue by agreeing to marry a blind girl, Shanta, daughter of a millionaire.
