A timid suitor seeks the help of a ruthless colonel to win the woman of his dreams in this classic romantic comedy from Basu Chatterji and B.R. Chopra. Unable to express his feelings, meek Arun (Amol Palekar) admires the beautiful Prabha (Vidya Sinha) from afar. But when a bold young man (Asrani) begins to pursue Prabha, Arun turns to Col. J.N.W. Singh (Ashok Kumar), who applies military tactics and transforms the Milquetoast into a love-warrior.
