An untouchable girl is sheltered in infancy in an emergency, when her kinfolk die in a plague epidermic, by an engineer, Upendranath Choudhury (Tarun Bose), and his wife, Charu (Sulochana), of Brahmin caste. The family assumes the arrangement to be temporary hoping a suitable home would be found for the child. In the course of various postponements of finding the girl a home, the family becomes attached to the child and she is brought up with their own daughter of similar age. The untouchable girl is named Sujata meaning well born. In later years as the girls grow Sujata (Nutan) is sometimes referred to by acquaintances of the family as their daughter. Charu always parries this but says that Sujata is like her own daughter. Sujatha though growing up in an atmosphere of love is aware from this phrase that she is in some way different from the girl she regards as her sister. The parents are not especially troubled by Sujatha's outcast origin till it becomes time to arrange the marriage of their own daughter, Rama (Shashikala). Rama's marriage has been discussed for years with another Brahmin family whose scion is the handsome and promising Adhir (Sunil Dutt). The family is deeply disturbed that an untouchable girl has so long lived in Rama's house. However they consider themselves modern and feel the marriage should go ahead provided the untouchable girl is first married off to a suitable husband wishing to avoid her presence at the wedding. But a complication has developed. Adhir, during his few visits to the house has fallen in love with Sujatha and wishes to marry her and not Rama. Charu is outraged that the marriage of her own daughter has been frustrated by the untouchable girl they have sheltered. Finally at the end when Sujatha donates blood to save Charu's life, the latter relents and calls Sujatha her daughter and marries her to Adhir.
