Heroine Lata (Vyjayanthimala) is a modern girl, pursued by villain Shekhar (Pran) but in love with novelist Ashok (Dewan) who turns out to be her neighbour called Kumar. Shekhar fathers a child to the country girl Malati (Padmini) who, unable to trace the perfidious Shekhar, abandons the child in Kumar’s house. Seeing Kumar playing parent to a mysterious child, Lata misunderstands the situation until the truth is revealed in the end. Pran, playing his usual villain role, undergoes an uncharacteristic change of heart to allow a happy ending for all. Intended mainly to showcase Vyjayanthimala in her Hindi debut, the film features her numerous dances as well as Kishore Kumar’s hit song Kusoor aap ka. This major hit, adapting Raman’s earlier hit Vazhkai/Jeevitham (1949), was the Madras- based AVM Studio’s first foray into Hindi cinema.

The film is a remake of the Tamil blockbuster Vazhkai (1949).

The film marks the Bollywood debut of actress Vyjayanthimala, who had already played the same role in the Tamil and Telugu versions.

Vyjayanthimala learned Hindi at the Hindi Prachar Sabha so that she could dub her own voice for her character.

The song "Saiyan Dil Mein Aana Re" was later remixed by Harry Anand for the album UMI 10 Vol 4.
