Chowdry Sarang is an arrogant man who refuses to bow down before anyone. He has a sister Chand who falls in love with Shiva, who is from an agricultural family. Sarang kills Shiva and his family members. However, Shiva`s sister-in-law, Ganga (Rakhi Gulzar), stays alive and is pregnant that time.
She vows to make Sarang bow down his head one day before her son. Also, her son and Sarang`s daughter would fall in love and her son would therefore become Sarang`s son-in-law and thus make him bow down his head.
Whether or not Ganga fulfills her vow (Saugandh), forms the crux of the story.
