Storyline

Of unknown parentage, as he was abandoned as a child, calling himself Brahmachari (Shammi Kapoor) lives in a heavily mortgaged house, with twelve other young orphans, and a servant/former thief (Mohan Choti). He struggles everyday to make ends meet. He cons the neighbouring landlord (Asit Sen)into forcibly giving him money so that they do not make any noise when he is showing the house to prospective tenants. One day he rescues Sheetal Choudhary (Rajshree) from killing herself. She was killing herself as her childhood betrothed, Ravi Khanna (Pran), is refusing to marry now that she is poor and the Khannas are wealthy. Brahmachari commits himself to helping groom and educate Sheetal so that she can meet with the high standards of Ravi and thus win his heart. In turn she must pay him enough money to clear the mortgage loan from his house. In this process he falls in love with her, but is committed to the children more than ever before, and Sheetal is determined to win back Ravi at any ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

The film was narrated to Shammi Kapoor but he did not give a response immediately. The producers thought he had rejected the offer when he loved the script. Meanwhile thinking Shammi had turned down the film the producers offered Rajendra Kumar the film and he agreed. One day Rajendra Kumar was talking to Shammi and told him he had signed a film titled "Bhahmchari".Hearing this Shammi' s jaw dropped as he thought he was doing the film. Shammi rang the producers and asked why the film was offered to Rajendra Kumar. The producers told Shammi it was too late as Rajendra was already paid and signed for the film. Shammi Kapoor then arrived at Rajendra Kumar' s house and pleaded with him to leave th film. Rajendra was very hesitant and not willing to. After much effort, Rajendra finally opted out and let Shammi Kapoor play the lead in the film. See more »
