This is a simplistic film about the relation between three brothers, one of whom happily fulfills the responsibilities of the father. He had promised his father on his deathbed that he would give his stepbrothers a sound upbringing and absolute love and care. He is also a dutiful son to his stepmother. He sacrifices his own pleasures and happiness for the education of his stepbrothers. But when it comes to repaying the debts, not just of money, one of the step brothers forgets his responsibilities. But his biggest fault lies in his spineless personality. He plays a blindfolded man, dancing to the tunes of his mean wife, who just wants to enjoy her life with her husband without having to bother about her new-found relations. This wife is a modern and educated young woman but is absolutely malicious and selfish. She instigates her foolish husband to act against his family and watches from the curtains as he fails to perform his part in maintaining a steady balance between his family and wife. In that Vijay Prasad Gupta (Prem Chopra) is the original defaulter. He fails to identify the weak link that is spoiling the halcyon atmosphere and peace in his house.
An effective part is played by Asit Sen, the henpecked husband of Leela Mishra. Through his clever wit and smart one-liners, enough light is thrown in what needs to be done in a family and what better be avoided. Who said running a house was a simple affair???
