Moti Amitabh Bachchan is a "gur" unrefined concentrated cane sugar trader who trades in the seasonal Gur made of "Khajur" date-nectar During the off season, he meets a girl Phoolbanu, and falls in love with her Moti approaches Phool Banu's father, who asks for mehar Dowry which he does not have

Mejuben Nutan a widow who is Moti's business associate prepares the Gur for him to sell Her Gur and consequently Moti's is very famous and people always prefer to buy from Moti Moti decides to get married to Mejuben so that he does not have to pay her, and hence can save more and sooner Mejuben, unaware of Moti's ulterior motive, is first surprised by the proposal but later accepts it At the end of the season, Moti saves enough for the meher, and divorces Mejuben

This incident shocks Mejuben and people of the community Moti meets Phoolbanu's father and asks again for his daughter's hand Satisfied with the meher,he marries off his daughterPhoolbanu to Moti All is fine till the Gur season arrives Phulbanu is terrible at making Gur, and Moti's customers stop buying from his shop Meanwhile a fish traderMajhi asked Mejuben to marry him He is honest with her to say that he has small children and wants Mejuben look after them He always treats her with courtesy

It is almost the end of the Gur season, and Moti does not make good profit that year He finally is left with no other option than to request Majubee to make a few vats of Gur for him to sell He takes two cans of date-nectar and approaches Mejuben at her husband's house to request her to make him some Gur to sell He is followed by Phulbanu At first Mejuben is very angry on seeing Moti but understands that he is in a pitiful condition She also sees Phulbanu listening to everything from behind a fence As the eyes of the two ladies meet they start weeping and hug each other The movie ends with this scene leaving it unclear whether Mejuben prepared gur for Moti or whether she teaches Phulbanu how to prepare tasty gur The second proposition seems plausible as in the end of the film Phulbanu had called Mejuben as "Apa" sister which was accepted by Mejuben and it is very possible that the whole issue got resolved and relations between Moti and Mejuben became better
