Honest Shankarnath, even though employed in a supervisory capacity, nets only Rs.630/-, and is unable to accede to any of the demands placed by his three school-going children, Ravi, Roopa, and Raja. When the trio declare a hunger-fast until their demands are met, he decides to let them run the household expenses, for a period of six months, by giving Ravi his entire salary. Ravi thinks that he can save a lot of money and get stuff for himself and his siblings - but things go seriously wrong when Raja loses money while gambling; relatives descend on them during Diwali; cash is stolen; and his mother, Padma, becomes seriously ill.

This movie is actually about 2 families living in the same area. One is an honest family and is poor and the other is taking bribes and is going up the ladder of wealth quite fast. But since it is a Hindi movie eventually the honest family will be happier in life than the poor family. Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Rakesh Roshan, Sharda and jr Mehmood all give good performances. A few hummable songs with one alltime great by the one and the only maestro KISHORE KUMAR. Rakesh Roshan has a reasanable role in this movie. But i guess this movie made quite a impression on him because once he became a director he remade this movie (atleasat the concept) as KALA BAZAAR with Anil Kapoor, Jackie Schroiff, Farah Naaz, Kimmi and Kadar Khan
