The movie story deals with Savitri, leaving with her disabled dad, Dharamraj, no alternative save to re-marry Champa, who gives birth to a son, Ketan. Champa is very cruel to Savitri and severely slaps and beats her around. Years later, the children have grown up, and Dharamraj has taken to alcohol in a big way. Then Ketan gets a job in the city and moves out. Shortly thereafter they receive a letter from him that he has got a job, but needs a security deposit of a thousand Rupees. Savitri agrees to marry an aging rich widower, Thakur, in return for the thousand Rupees, if she does not return the money by Diwali. Savitri, who loves Satyavan, is forced to marry Thakur, but on the night of the marriage, the Thakur dies because of a snake-bite. Widowed Savitri is molested by his younger brother, Balwant, and tries to kill herself. She is saved by a few villagers, but then subsequently sold to a Madam, Jamnunabai, who wants her to work as a Courtesan for the rest of her life. Her patrons are happy and a rich man, Nawab Hasmat Ali Baig, is willing to pay a huge sum of money for sexual favors.
