     Summary :

    Karan Singh lives a wealthy lifestyle in a palace along with his widowed mother, an elder brother, Shamsher, his wife and daughter, Meena. His mother, Rani Maa, spent most of her time playing cards and left his upbringing to his nanny. As a result, Karan ended up believing her to be his real mother. Now matured, a womanizer and alcoholic, he comes to the rescue of a former air hostess, Lata, who is being molested by her boss, hires her as his secretary, and permits her parents, sister and brother, to move into one of his cottages. Lata attempts to change his bad habits, initially meets with opposition, but eventually succeeds; they fall in love. Karan even builds a palace and names it 'Prem Nagar'. Their idyllic romance is shattered when Lata is accused of interfering in palace affairs and stealing a valuable necklace—with her mother testifying that she found it on Lata's purse and, as a result, a much-humiliated Lata quits and her family moves out.
    In the meantime Karan found out the truth that Lata was victim of his mother's conspiracy to push her out of his life to maintain family prestige, as he was supposed to date a girl of his status and background. Karan confronts his mother and elder brother and leaves home in frustration. He also clears the matter with Lata and asks for pardon for his family and himself. Deeply hurt, Lata tells him that it is not his family's accusation but his distrust hurt her most and she just wants to go away for sake of her self-esteem. All efforts of Karan to reconcile failed and he went into deep agony.

As result his health deterioted further, Lata shows up who overheard doctor's advice and give him a glass of wine, Karan refused as he thinks he has no reason to live on, Lata left the palace helpless. Lata decided to marry someone else so that Karan can forget her and return to normal life.

Taking it as issue of her character, they cancelled the marriage.

यह लाल रंग कब मुझे छोड़ेगा – 2
मेरा ग़म कब तलक मेरा दिल तोड़ेगा

यह लाल रंग कब मुझे छोड़ेगा
किसी का भी लिया नाम तो आई याद तू ही तू – 2
यह तो प्याला शराब का बन गया यह लहू
यह लाल रंग कब मुझे छोड़ेगा
पीने की कसम दाल दी, पीऊँगा किस तरह – 2
यह न सोचा तुने यार मैं जीऊँगा किस तरह
यह लाल रंग कब मुझे छोड़ेगा
चला जाऊं कहीं छोडके मैं तेरा यह शहर, हाँ
चला जाऊं कहीं छोडके मैं तेरा यह शहर
न तो यहाँ अमृत मिले पीने को न ज़हर
यह लाल रंग कब मुझे छोड़ेगा
मेरा ग़म कब तलक, हो मेरा दिल तोड़ेगा
यह लाल रंग कब मुझे छोड़ेगा
