Raghuvir (Dev Anand) is thrown out of his job as a bus conductor following an argument with a commuter. He is poor and has a mother (Leela Chitnis), who is ill, and 2 younger siblings to take care of. Now, he does not know how to make ends meet. In his sorrow, he sets up his own black marketing business with his network and thrives in it.
Everything goes haywire when a few college students buy movie tickets from his team. When Alka (Waheeda Rehman) gets to know that they have been bought in black, she tears them up. Raghu happens to hear this conversation and be watching what was going on. The incident has a great impact on him. Alka’s boyfriend Nandkumar Chattopadhyay (Vijay Anand) promises that he would not do it again.
Raghu is smitten by Alka and he begins to follow her. Having gained enough wealth now, Raghu shifts his family to a new and spacious flat that he has bought in Marine Drive near Alka’s place.

Nand bags a scholarship and travels abroad for higher studies. Alka’s parents take her to Ooty to get his mind off Nand. Raghu decides that this would be the right opportunity to mingle with the family and gets a ticket in the same first class train cabin as her family. During the night, Alka’s father gets back pain and Raghu massages it to his relief. Thus he gets friendly with the family.
When he tries to romance Alka, she resists and spurns him. She also says that she is engaged to Nand. Raghu is heartbroken. He returns to Bombay (Mumbai now) to his business. But the love he had for Alka has already changed him. While leaving Ooty, he had promised that he would give up all wrong activities. Raghu convinces his partners to stop their bad deeds and get honest jobs. He sets up cloth business for almost all of them. But some of them return to black-marketing. Raghu is then surprised to meet Alka one day in Bombay.

Alka realizes that she is also falling in love with Raghu. Nand returns to India with the news that he has fallen in love with his French teacher. Alka is happy that her route is clear and sings this song when she meets Raghu.

The video opens with Waheeda Rehman wearing a simple sari and clapping her hands to attract Dev Anand’s attention. She begins the song. She goes and sits on a large rock on the rocky shore. Dev Anand stands up and then again dejectedly sits down on another rock. She approaches him and continues the song enthusiastically.

Waheeda Rehman plays with the waves of the sea and runs toward the rocky shore. She walks across the shore with a spring in her step. Dev Anand is sulking and gets up to leave. She plays with the sea water that had formed a pool on the shore. She follows him and reaches him immediately. She pulls a rose from her hair and tucks it in a buttonhole of his shirt.

Waheeda Rehman places her arms around Dev Anand’s neck. When she sings the next few lines, he asks happily if it is true. She nods her head as she sings. The video ends with the song.
