Slapstick musical comedy in which the innocent Bhola (Dutt) gives up his commitment to celibacy when he falls for sexy neighbour Bindu (Saira Banu). His rivals in love are his own uncle (Prakash) and Bindu’s traditionalist Carnatic music teacher (Mehmood). He, however, wins his girl with the assistance of the crooked guru (K. Kumar), when he serenades her using the guru for a musical playback. The high point of the film is a zany take-off on the jugalbandi (musical contest) between the guru and the Carnatic musician (Ek chatur naar karke singaar, sung by Manna Dey and Kumar). The original Bengali story had previously been filmed by Sudhir Mukherjee (Pasher Bari, 1952), C. Pullaiah (Pakkinti Ammayi, 1953) and Raghavaiah (Adutha VeetuPenn?, 1960).
