Extrovert Pesi (A. Kher) and shy Piroj (Shah) are both in love with Jeroo (Azmi). Pesi marries her and also draws close to the widowed lawyer Soona (K. Kher). Piroj is transferred away from Bombay and returns later to find that Jeroo had a miscarriage and that Pesi now prefers Soona's company. When Pesi dies, Soona, who has borne him a son, pays for his funeral. Based on a short story by Karanjia written in the early 1950s.
