Two Adivasi tribes are in conflict for the local economic rights. The daughter of the Nagi tribe’s chief, Mala (Vyjayanthimala) vows to kill the son of the Ragi tribe’s chief, Sanatan (Pradeep Kumar) as revenge. Trespassing the enemy territory, she is mesmerized by music of a flute (played by the musician Kalyanji Virji Shah). Coming closer, she finds out that the singer is Sanatan. They fall in love, but find it difficult to appease the enmity between the two tribes and to resist the attempts of the villain Prabir (Jeevan) to marry Mala.
