A light romantic comedy about three students who share a flat in Delhi. Jomo (Bedi) and Omi (Baswani) are forever chasing women in the city but it is the shy Siddharth (Shaikh) who finds a woman he can love. The film also pokes fun at the way mainstream Hindi cinema portrays love relationships. Amitabh Bachchan puts in a guest appearance here, as he seems to do in all Gul Anand productions (Jalwa, 1986; Hero Hiralal, 1988).
