Popular 60s love story and lukewarm remake of the Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen Bengali classic Sagarika (1956). Gopi (Nageshwara Rao) meets Anuradha (Savitri) while at medical college. Gopi agrees to marry a woman of his parents’ choice (Girija) because the dowry will allow him to study medicine in the USA. While he is away, Anuradha moves in with Gopi’s family and impersonates his fiance whenever he telephones and also writes the fiance’s love-letters to Gopi. This, and the fact that his fiance wanted to marry another man anyway, leads to the happy ending.
