Ramu is fast in learning the ropes of Kalu's deceitful trade. But soon, Chhabili (Mala Sinha) who is madly in love with Ramu, finds put that there is nothing honourable about Ramu's new job. She beseeches him to leave Kalu's company and earn an honest living. Ramu also wants to do that. He hates lying to his mother (Leela Chitnis) and doing bad things but dithers thinking what will happen if he is not able to gather enough money to marry off his young sister Sandhya (Ratna).
Then there are more blame games and running around. Till, Ramu reaches the doorstep of Acharyaji (Shivraj) and tells him that he is tired of having to prove himself all the time. No one trusts him, not even his own mother and he wants to live a clean livelihood now. Despite the management's caution, the Acharya shows faith in Ramu and thus starts his journey towards redemption...
Not the usual Shammi Kapoor caper, this one does of course has some riveting performances. Shammi Kapoor is good with his act as the struggler Ramu who just wants to live a peaceful and happy life. Mala Sinha is awesome as the rustic belle with a heart of gold. She is the person who is almost wholly responsible for bringing back Ramu from the dark recesses of crime and destruction. Leela Chitnis delivers an able performance as Ramu's helpless mother. Raj Kumar carries his magnetic charm and swagger. Here he is the villain and he is utterly believable as one.
Well, not quite happy with how Ujala panned out, I'm off to watch a regular Shammi fare, one with lots of romance, dance, songs and fun. What about you?
