Before they could any further action, Jamunadas' daughter, Nemo, is found dead in her bath-tub. The police suspect that this could be the work of the dreaded Mr. X, and want to question him.

Plot Summaries - Add

Text: The story line of this film has a scientific aspect involved in it. A Scientist professor is trying to create a remedy in his laboratory for the treatment of Cancer. He experiments all such medicines on his pet cat (Who perhaps is suffering from Cancer). When the professor makes the cat to drink the newly prepared medicine, the cat becomes invisible. Then he realizes to his surprise that by mistake he had created a medicine which when taken makes a person invisible. The Hero (Ashok Kumar) is in love with the daughter of Professor (Nalini Jaywant). By mistake Ashok Kumar also drinks the medicine and he also becomes invisible. As the professor had not invented the antidote for his newly prepared medicine, the hero can not come to its live form, and others cannot see him (Hence Mr X). With a view to make others feel his presence he wraps a black bandage tape around his body, which others can see. There is a criminal minded villain (Pran), who is trying to marry Nalilni Jaywant. He commits a lot many crimes, which are all attributed to Ashok Kumar, as he (Ashok Kumar) is termed as an absconder after such crimes. All strange incidents like a car running without a driver, or a girl flying in air etc. are due to invisibility of Ashok Kumar. With lots of misunderstanding & confusion, Ashok Kumar is finally able to prove his innocence when the Professor is able to invent an antidote for his earlier medicine, that can make the invisible person as visible. Hero takes revenge with Pran, who is punished. Ashok Kumar's friend Johny Walker acts as a comedian, who runs a laundry. The famous song "Lal Lal gal" is picturised on Johny Walker, when he is ironing the clothes. While doing so, he starts dozing off and then he imagines that he was in a Paris Night Club and singing the above song there. He wake s up when the ironed cloth starts burning. With beautiful music, and very interesting story line, the film was a great hit. This was the first Hindi Movie on the theme of invisibility, which gave follow up themes for other such movies like "Mr 'X' in Bombay", Mr India.
