Storyline

Years later she grows up to be beautiful girl namely, Neelu (Mumtaz), and Kulwant Rai's son, Sameer (Dharmendra) takes a fancy to her. This fancy turns to love, and he proposes to marry her. This proposal does not auger well with his mother, Rani Maa Rai (Veena), who wants her son to marry Jugnu (Yogeeta Bali), who is the daughter of her Diwan (Iftekhar), and both Rani Maa and Jugnu pressure and humiliate Neelu so that she can leave Sameer. Sameer's attempts to get Neelu her vision take root when he meets with eye specialist Dr. J.P. Tandon (Shatrughan Sinha). When Jugnu finds out about this, she concocts a devious plan that will get Neelu out of her way forever. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

mutts is a blind girl in a village.dharmendra spots her and wants to give back her eyesight as she lost her eyesight in an accident when she got bumped of by his father in her childhood.prem chopra is complexly portrayed .he plays step-brother of dharmendra.dharmendra's mother wants him to marry yogeeta Bali .but he has fallen in love with the blind girl.yogeeta Bali and dharmendra's mother persuades mutts to play blind even when she gets back her eyesight.for its below dharmendra to marry a down trodden village girl.

they bring along a false husband of her who carries her off into the clutches of prem chopra the illegitimate half brother of dharmendra.his love interest betrays him and he get killed.his girl friend and her dead husband who is actually alive who played possum to get insurance money try to kill mutts as she is a witness to prem chopra's murder.everything gets resolved in the final climax based on a novel of the same name.mutts best role.music by r.d. burman is finest.all the cast is excellent.script of the film is finest.a film with lots of twist and turns.vcd on Indus is quite good quality.
