Wealthy college student Ramesh (Joy Mukherjee) worships his new mentor, professor Brij Mohan Agnihotri (I.S. Johar), an inveterate bachelor who insists that only fools become involved with love and marriage. But when Ramesh meets Poonam (Saira Banu), he can't help falling in love. To make matters worse, Brij falls for the pretty girl, too. Directed by Samir Ganguly, this classic film sparked a fashion trend when Banu's mini-sari caught on.
