A recent graduate in accounting, Ram Prasad Sharma (Amol Palekar) needs a job. To land a position with the stern businessman Bhavani Shankar (Utpal Dutt), Ram plays up his studious, serious side by dressing in modest Indian clothes, spurting clichés about the value of hard work and conceals his passion for sports. After Bhavani spots Ram skiving off work to watch a hockey match, the quick-thinking Ram invents a good-for-nothing twin, whom he calls Lakshman and convinces Bhavani that the fellow he saw at the match was in fact Lakshman. Bhavani insists on ‘Lakshman’ tutoring his daughter Urmila (Bindiya Goswami) in music. Now, Ram has to play two roles for Bhavani - the earnest respectful Ram at work and the modern flashy loudmouth Lakshman. To top it all Bhavani Shankar's daughter falls in love with Lakshman, while Bhavani wants her to marry Ram. What will happen when Ramprasad finds out that he has been had?
