PlotEdit

This film is a simple story of a village boy, Baadal (Joy Mukherjee) who meets a girl from the city, Preeti (Waheeda Rehman) in the most unusual circumstances and the couple eventually fall in love, and wish to get married. However, this is unacceptable to Preeti's father, played by Rehman, who wants her to marry Roshan. The latter is actually a scheming villain and he tries all methods to separate the couple. There's a lot of drama, jealousy, and a challenge that ensues, but Baadal ends up triumphant through it all. The most fun element was Kishore Kumar's character, Ganpat Rao, who effortlessly makes you smile from the time he enters the scene. Then there's the moment of unity for actor brothers Ashok Kumar and Kishore Kumar, which was heartwarming for more reasons than just their screen presence together. In real life, they are maternal uncles to the Hero-cum-filmmaker, Joy Mukherjee.
