Thanks to his sister-in-laws, indulgence Geeta, Alok manages to attend a music college from where he graduates with flying colours. On his return home, however, Triloki Prasad insists that his son give up his fancifulpursuit of music, and settle down to the study of law. Alok is unable to openly rebel against his dictorial father, but he quitely continues to learn music from Sarjubai, an improvelished old lady of great talent who now lives in a nearby bustee. Triloki Prasad is shocked to learn that his aristocratic son spends most of his time in a bustee, surrounded by riff-raff. He takes up the case of a neighbouring mill-owner and succeeds in having the bustee destroyed and Sarjubai evicted. Aloke jubilantly arrives at the bustee with presents for Sarjubai on her birthday only to be confronted by a spectacle of grief and squalor. Aghast at the ruthless action of his father, he leaves the house, determined not to desert his more unfortunate friends. Alaap is the story of Alok's life thereafter, following him through his trials and tribulation as he rejects the system his father upholds and de-classes himself. In the slums he meets Ganesh, the son of the family coach driver, who now drives a tonga himself. Out of compassion he even marries Radhiya, the sister of Ganesh. Against all odds, struggling against poverty he had never known, Alok continues his study of music, driving a tonga during the day to support his family. Until the day of crisis, when destiny again intervenes to test the calibre of his commitment to himself, to his family, to his music.
