Summary: The nice Inspector Malik (Deepak) reforms the criminal Babu (Anand) who is then pursued by the gang boss Bali (Raj) who suspects Babu has become an informer. In a fight, Bali is killed and Babu has to go on the run. A blackmailer, Bhagatji (Khan), forces Babu to impersonate the long-lost son of a rich household in order to steal their jewellery. In the process, Babu falls in love with Maya (Sen), the daughter of the family. After the film’s noirish beginning, as in many Dev Anand starrers, it turns into a romance, initially with incestual overtones since Maya believes Babu to be her brother. Eventually, when Babu discovers that the lost son was Bali, whom he has killed, he accepts his responsibilities to the family and that Maya will marry someone else.

Song: Dekhne mein bholaa hai dil ka salonaa
Bambai se aayaa hai babu
देखने में भोला है दिल का सलोना
बम्बई से आया है बाबू चिन्नन्ना
