Storyline

Orphaned at a very young age, Deepak and his sister, Laxmi, live a poor lifestyle. Deepak is introduced to Krishna and soon both get married and live together with Krishna's brother, Ramu. Deepak drives a taxi and it is through his earnings that they all live on. Soon Krishna gets pregnant, much to the delight of the entire household. Ramu has fallen into bad company and steals Krishna's necklace to throw a party for his friends. A kind-hearted wealthy Jeweler, Shyam Lal, returns the necklace to Deepak, as Deepak had returned his suitcase full of cash. Shyam would like his doctor son, Shankar, to get married to Laxmi. A delighted Deepak arranges a meeting at the Lals residence. It is at this meeting that Deepak's life will be turned upside down, for this is where he will find that Laxmi is pregnant; shock and tragedy will follow when shortly thereafter Ramu will be run down by a car; his wife will give birth to a baby boy and pass away, and Laxmi will drown herself in a river.

A decent tearjerker from the 70s
5 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A poor but honest taxi driver Deepak is the main character. To establish his honesty credential, he destroys a gambling game in progress and then proceeds to lecture his friend on ills of gambling. Pretty quickly he gets married to Krishna (Waheeda Rehman). Another parallel story is that of a jeweler who is rich but honest played by David. His well covered wife who is the butt of all weighty jokes and her clown, loafer brother who does not miss an opportunity to address his bro-in-law as Taklu (baldy) or saale!

One fine day the honest rich guy forgets his bag filled with Rs 10000 in the honest poor guy's taxi. The rest is pretty decent. Lots of sadness. Some comedy. Decent collection of songs. I liked it.
