The demobbed soldier Shankar (Kumar) returns to find his family perished in a fire and his infant son Ramu (Ganguly) struck dumb by the catastrophe. When he is attacked by the villainous Thakur’s men, Shankar is rescued by Meera (Choudhury) and they fall in love, provoking further trouble from the Thakur whose son Jagga wants to marry Meera. For his directorial debut, the comedian Kishore Kumar cast himself in a tragic role (his own productions were never comedies). The film is remembered mainly for its classic song A chalke tujhe main le ke chalun written by the star for himself.
