Dev Anand plays two identical-looking soldiers, the comrades in arms Capt. Anand and Major Verma, in this (for Navketan) unusually excessive melodrama and major hit. Anand is in love with Mita (Sadhana) while Verma is married to Ruma (Nanda). When Verma is presumed dead, Anand has to take care of Ruma, endangering his relationship with Mita, esp. since Ruma mistakes Anand for her real husband. When Verma turns up again, severely crippled, he believes Anand has taken his place in his home. The resolution comes when all four characters meet in a temple. Some of the film’s most successful songs including Asha Bhosle and Mohammed Rafi’s duet Abhi na jao chhod kar and Lata Mangeshkar’s bhajan Allah tero naam.
