The story centres around three childhood friends, Rajan, Ramesh and Mangal, in search of their professional careers and, of course, life mates.
While Ramesh, who is intelligently guided by his parents, gets everything rather easily in life (till at the time of the narrative final denouement he learns that happiness and love are commodities that are not very easily bought), Rajan has to overcome a great deal of family prejudices before he can don an army man’s uniform and claim the hand of the girl he loves.
The girl’s father is his officer, it is easy to win over the girl, but it is more difficult to persuade the father to give him his daughter’s hand, especially since Rajan joins the army as a mere soldier. Mangal, who falls in love with a rather plump daughter of a sweet-meat seller, evolves his own formula of love and happiness, in which the convenience of today is more important than the prospects of tomorrow.
And so the three friends, with their own ideas of love and life, their problems overlapping each other’s, go through their respective lives till the shattering powerful battlefield climax in which Rajan proves that the only important thing for a man-is to act like a man! And Neena, who had in her own quiet way loved Rajan, looked after the family and prayed for his success, is happy when she sees the frustrated young man change into a confident hero of the battlefield.
All the world loves a lover and when the story ends on a happy note with Rajan and Neena stepping out of their cloudy past into a sun-kissed future, the two friends Ramesh and Mangal have smiles on their faces. For, so rare, indeed, and fortunate are the instances in life where a man gets the job he wants-and the girl gets the man she loves !
