The Hindu wedding ritual of seven steps around the fire (Pheray) are taken by Sawarn Lata's best friend Zeenat, who is hidden in a traditional wedding dress. Sawarn Lata moves to her new home but plays as a sick women to avoid any sexual relation with her husband. M. Ismael getting tired from her sickness and finally find out the real fact of her behavior. He decides to re-arrange the wedding ceremony, but not with him this time, but with his wife's lover - and that was a happy end of Pakistan's first super hit musical film.
