Meena and Mohan belong to an orthodox Brahmin family. When the brother and sister pair adopt a mongrel puppy Moti and bring it home, the parents are unhappy.

Once Raju, the rich landlords son shows off his pedigree dogs and humiliates Meena and Mohan. The two insulted kids begin training Moti to be better than Raju’s dogs. Moti grows up to become strong and intelligent who not only saves Raju from drowning, but also catches a thief once.
