Beena mistakenly receives Nirmal, the school teacher and upon learning her mistake she comes to despise him. The Zamindar gives half his powers to Suresh who mishandles the power and starts bullying people to the extent of stopping the Saraswati pooja from happening in a school. Nirmal seeks Beena's help and succeeds in his mission when Beena makes the Zamindar agree to the Pooja. The Zamindar wishes to build a school near his home and entrusts Nirmal to the responsibility, who Suresh starts to despise as he fears losing his new found control. Beena and Nirmal start falling in love with each other as the new school starts developing. Nirmal is framed for an attempted murder by Suresh who tries to get rid of him to marry Beena.
