Runaway wealthy heiress, Raksha, joins a traveller, Madan, in a small truck, heading toward the home of his uncle, Manoharlal.

Madan is suspicious and starts making inquiries about this death. Soon he himself comes under suspicion, and with the help of Surjit, he is arrested and imprisoned by the police, on the charge of kidnapping Raksha. This gets him out of the way, so that the real culprits can get away with the wealth. Written by
Madan (Dev Anand) discovers that he has inherited a fortune from his deceased uncle. Madan goes to his uncle's place, only to discover that the uncle's sister (Lalita Pawar) and her son Kuldeep (Krishan Dhawan) have taken over the property, claiming the inheritance. Madan has to unearth the actual will and claim his rightful share.
The movie had an interesting premise but, as is frequently the case with Hindi movies of that era, fell short on execution. Every time it looked like the narrative was gathering steam, the flow was interrupted by a song. The movie had its moments for sure- it could have been a classic but for the songs (admittedly, the makers of the DVD might have chopped off a few scenes).
Dev Anand is brilliant as ever, as is veteran Jeevan, whose portrayal of Surjit was outstanding. Vijay Anand, directing his first movie, showed signs of the genius he was to become in late years.
Worth a one time watch at best, which is a pity since it could have been so much more.
