Ravi (Rajesh Khanna) accidentally lands a job as postman in a remote village after being an unemployed college graduate for some Time. He meets a variety of people as he fits into rural life, including Mohini (Hema Malini). He mistakes her affection for something more, and falls in love, while she is still waiting for a somewhat philandering Army officer with whom she has had a fling with when his battalion is training near her village. Ravi withdraws into himself when he finds out about her fling, and tries to help her locate her love when war breaks out. He brings her news of her lover's death, and there are misunderstandings which cause anguish ... eventually leading to a compromise and a happy ending.

A class movie of First Indian Superstar
7 August 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This film was made during action, violence and cheap Mahala films' age, but it was the guts of Rajesh Khanna who performed in such a nice film during totally negative environment. The character of a honest postman was portrayed by him superbly and the song Dakia Dak Laya can only match with him in Indian cine world. A real all time family household film, which can be watched with daughter to grand-mother without any hesitation. In my opinion today's generation of stars never think over to perform in such type of sober films, which has no cheap duologue, song or item dance etc. No such type of film is found in the career of the so called Big B (?), or SRK or Hrithik etc. Actually no director can even imagine them to perform in such type of sober characters.
