A musical fantasy. Although Mahendra (Shukul), belongs to a clan of proud warriors, he is a hypochondriac. This poses a problem when he woos Menaka (Wadkar) who is fixated on swash-buckling heroics and appears more impressed with Mahendra's rival Jeevan. The 'hero' overcomes his cowardice by taking a magic pill and dreaming that he is his own ancestor, overthrowing a band of robbers (led by Jeevan) and rescuing the damsel (Menaka). The enacted dream, which occupies most of the film's 2nd half, transforms the hero.
