Dubeyji hires a young man as a Professor in this College. The young man's name is Vijay Kumar (Guru Dutt), who makes a good and lasting impression on Sharda and both fall in love. Vijay Kumar's mother (Leela Chitnis) and sister Uma (Lata Sinha) live in a small house in a far off village and are not wealthy. This affair between a professor and a student spreads like hot fire through the college campus and angers Dubeyji so much that he asks the College Principal, Vidya Ratan, to dismiss Vijay Kumar. But Vidya Ratan is supportive of Vijay Kumar and Sharda and convinces Dubeyji that it will be in everyone's best interest if both get married. Dubeyji reluctantly agrees and the two get married and return to Vijay Kumar's home. Once there, Vijay Kumar is approached by the Arts College Principal (David), who offers him a job at his college. Soon there is more good news when Vijay Kumar's sister Uma (Lata Sinha) gets married to her boyfriend Sukhiram (Deven Varma), son of the comically parsimonious Dukhiram (Om Prakash). One day during preparations for College Day festivities, Vijay falls off the roof of the college building and is hospitalized. The doctors are able to save his life, but warn the family that Vijay's heart has been weakened and being subjected to any stress can be fatal, including a sexual relationship with his wife. But the lure of the human flesh proves to be too much for Vijay and as soon as he recovers he wants to consummate his marriage with Sharda, who must either give in to the attraction of the flesh herself, or live the life of a celibate, or alternatively separate from Vijay and marry Shankar (Feroz Khan), the young man her father had wanted to marry in the first place.
