The movie starts with the video of the Palace of the General, the real Palace, where most part of the story is based, in fact, except the ending, the entire movie is set inside the Palace.
The story of the movie goes somewhat like this, a brother comes to palace with his sister to leave her there as a maid and receives Rs. sixty for that.

She is handed over under the guidance of a woman named Kesari, who takes care of her like her own child. The girl, Sabita, as she is named by the General, is a fast learner and impressed with the lifestyles of the palace, does her best in everything getting reward from the General each time. She develops feelings for a servant boy working there named Nakul, and this love at first sight is a two way thing. However, the General having his eyes set on her would never allow that to happen and sensing the romance blooming between them, he tries everything to separate them forever. They, however, could not publicize their relationship, as the General would get Nakul killed in front of everyone, getting him beaten to death. Amidst the thorns and adverse hatred, blooms their love, however, the General sends Nakul away to another part of the country and keeps Sabita inside the Palace under house arrests.
Despite his attempts, will the General be able to win her heart? Is the love shared between Nakul and Sabita a true epic love? To find answer to these questions, the viewers need to watch the movie by themselves.
