Storyline

Grey-haired, comically parsimonious widower Gokulchand lives a middle-class lifestyle in Agra, India, runs a shop selling essential food items, along with his sons, Manohar and Kishore. While Manohar is employed and married to Devki, and has two children, Roopa and Munna, Kishore is studying Engineering. Gokulchand would like to get rich and enjoy life to it's fullest, in order to this he invests in a lottery - which he does not win - but ends up inheriting his brother, Nihalchand's estate and wealth - over 10 Lakh Rupees. The family move into a palatial mansion, Manohar quits his job, and Gokulchand closes down his shop. Shortly thereafter Gokulchand announces that he wants to go to Kashmir for a holiday. Kishore is in love with Rita and would like to get married to her.

A good movie with a social message
17 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the sixties movies which tells about the corrupting influence of money and how it tends to attract the wrong kind of people around you. Om Prakash plays Gokuldas who after being declared the heir of Seth Nihalchand, metamorphoses into Seth Gokuldas, now flanked by a money hungry buffoon cum villain Pran and an eye-rolling Manorama. The changed Gokuldas estranges himself from his devoted kids, Manohar and Kishore. How he realizes his folly forms the crux of the story. The movie has some good music by Ravi and good performances by Pran, Om Prakash, Ramesh Deo , Seema Deo and Sanjay Khan. The glamor quotient is taken care of by a débutant Babita and a encumbered by a golden wig but essentially charming Helen. Incidentally the movie also marked the debut of Neetu SIngh albeit as a child actress.
