The movie starts with Raju Dev Anand being released from jail Raju was a freelance guide, who earned his living by taking tourists to historic sites One day, a wealthy and aging archaeologist, Marco Kishore Sahu comes to the city with his young wife Rosie Waheeda Rehman, the daughter of a courtesan Marco wants to do some research on the caves outside the city and hires Raju as his guide

While Marco devotes himself to the discovery of the cave, Raju takes Rosie on a tour and appreciates her dancing ability and innocence He learns about Rosie's background as a daughter of a virgin courtesan and how Rosie has achieved respectability as the wife of Marco but at a terrible cost She had to give up her passion of dancing since it was unacceptable to Marco Meanwhile, Rosie tries to commit suicide by consuming poison Marco, upon learning of the incident, returns from the caves to see Rosie and is furious with Rosie after seeing her alive He tells her that her act of committing suicide was a drama, otherwise she would have consumed more sleeping pills so that she could really have died Upon returning to the caves which were discovered, Rosie learns that Marco is spending time and enjoying the company of a native tribal girl She is enraged at Marco and both indulge in a serious heated discussion, which concludes with Rosie leaving the caves, and she once again wants to end her life

Raju calms her down by saying that committing suicide is a sin, and that she should live to pursue her dream She finally says good-bye to the relation of being the wife of Marco Now she needs support and a home Raju gives her shelter Rosie is considered a prostitute by Raju's community as classical dancing traditionally was prostitutes' work at royal courts, which leads to many problems, including his mother and her brother insisting that Rosie be kicked out Raju refuses and his mother leaves him His friend and driver also falls out with him over Rosie Raju loses his business and the entire town turns against him Undeterred by these setbacks, Raju helps Rosie embark on a singing and dancing career and Rosie becomes a star As she rises as a star, Raju becomes dissolute — gambling and drinking Marco comes back on the scene Trying to win Rosie back, he brings flowers and has his agent ask Rosie to release some jewelry which is in a safe deposit box Raju, a bit jealous, does not want Marco to have any contact with Rosie and forges Rosie's name on the release of the jewels Meanwhile, Rosie and Raju drift apart due to Rosie's incomprehensible behaviour when she tortures Raju by not obliging him a caring hug even and asks him to leave her room else she says she will have to go out Before this, they also had a discussion about how a man should live when Rosie remembers Marco and tells Raju that Marco was probably correct when he used to say that a man should not live on a woman's earnings

Raju retorts by saying that she is under a misunderstanding that she has become a star on her own and it was only because of Raju's efforts that she became famous Later, Rosie learns of the forgery release Raju is convicted of forgery, resulting in a two-year sentence Rosie does not understand why Raju indulged in forgery, when he could have easily asked her for money It was not money, it was the loving fascination for Rosie which urged Raju not to reveal Marco's visit to Rosie so that she doesn't remember him again and to eliminate the probability of Rosie and Marco's togetherness, if at all, there was any little chance On the day of his release, his mother and Rosie come to pick him up but they are told that he was released six months ago because of his good behaviour

Meanwhile, upon his release Raju wanders alone Despair, poverty, rags, hunger, and loneliness engulf him until he finds a wandering group of sadhus holy men with whom he spends a night at a derelict temple in a small townRaju impresses the woman with the logic in taking a husband and she submits, which convinces Bhola that Raju is a swami holy man Impressed by this, Bhola spreads the news through the village Raju is taken as a holy man by the village Raju assumes the role of village holy man Swami Ji and engages in skirmishes with the local panditsAnd drama started here Due to drought Raju was forced to fast for 12 days so that it rains Meanwhile, his mother, friend and Rosie unite with him and patch things up In the end it rains but Raju dies

Dev Anand was approached by American director Tad Danielewski and Pearl Buck to be cast in an American film based on a novel by an Indian author Although Dev Anand had refused, he took up the opportunity for a collaboration when he met Tad again at the 1962 Berlin Film Festival Somebody suggested The Guide Dev Anand purchased the book and read it at one go He called up Pearl who invited him to the United States to discuss the project With their approval, he called up R K Narayan and procured the rights to the book

Pearl tutored Waheeda Rehman on her diction for the English part But due to differences of opinion between the two production teams, Anand postponed the Hindi version, thereby freeing Chetan Anand to direct Haqeeqat which was later highly acclaimed It also became an opportunity for Vijay Anand who stepped in, as the film proved a landmark for him
