Summary: Based on Chandrakant Kakodkar's novel Nilambiri.
Along with Aradhana (1969), this film, released within weeks of the former title, established Khanna as a major star. Navendu’s (Sahni) stepmother (Veena) treats him like her own son. When his father dies, Navendu has the responsibility of looking after his stepmother and stepbrothers (Khanna and Chopra) which leads to conflict when one of them (Chopra) decides to marry a shrewish ‘modern’ girl (Bindu). Most of the film is a Khanna-Mumtaz romance culminating in the famous Bindiya chamkegi song sung by Lata Mangeshkar.
