Inder Sen Johar's much publicized comic look at the forcible sterilization program carried out under the orders of former Indian Prime Minsiter, Indira Gandhi, and her son, Sanjay Gandhi, during the dark days of Emergency. Johar comically portrays this story, which was censored and banned for several years by the Government of India, and stars duplicates of many popular Bollywood stars, including Anitav Bachchan. Songs (which continue to be banned by the Indian Government) are hilarious too: "Kiski chali hai kahe gaye baat ye pyare Jhulelalan, jaan bachao, kher manoa, lagega sub ka number, dhama dham mast kalandhar, aaj hai koi baher to kal woh hoga andhar..."; "Prabhuji de do ik santann...."; "Kya mil gaya Bhagwan, Emergency lagake nasbandi karake hamari chuthi karake, nasbandi karake hamari bansi bajake...".

Ravi (Rajesh Khanna) accidentally lands a job as postman in a remote village after being an unemployed college graduate for some Time. He meets a variety of people as he fits into rural life, including Mohini (Hema Malini). He mistakes her affection for something more, and falls in love, while she is still waiting for a somewhat philandering Army officer with whom she has had a fling with when his battalion is training near her village. Ravi withdraws into himself when he finds out about her fling, and tries to help her locate her love when war breaks out. He brings her news of her lover's death, and there are misunderstandings which cause anguish - eventually leading to a compromise and a happy ending. A couple of lilting melodies from Laxmikant Pyarelal compliment this film - Allah megh de, Dakhiya Dakh Laya, and Koi mere mathe pe bindiya . - it is somewhat of an extension of Khushboo, with some of the theatrical roles reversed. Sarat Chandra Chatterjee was known for poignancy in his works which included the ever famous Devdas, and Sampooran Singh Gulzar does a pretty decent job of carrying that same torch over.

It is a remake of the Bengali film Nishi Padma (1970), directed by Arabinda Mukherjee, who wrote screenplay for both the films based on the Bengali short story Hinger Kochuri by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay.

The movie is about a school boy, who is ill-treated by his step mother, and becomes friends with a prostitute neighbour. The film stars Sharmila Tagore playing a prostitute with a heart of gold, with Rajesh Khanna in the role of a lonely businessman and Vinod Mehra as adult Nandu, the young child, who they both come to care for.

Raju lives as a derelict as a result of being estranged from his bitter father, a district judge, who threw Raju's mother out of the house years ago. Raju shacks up with a Dacoit (pickpocket bandit) as his surrogate father only to realize that the man is actually responsible for the original misunderstanding between his parents. Raju kills him, and then tries killing his father, but fails, is arrested, and is taken to court right before his very own father, who presides there as the Judge. Raju has his childhood girlfriend as his legal representative, and the onus is now on his father, who must pass judgment without showing any personal sentiment.
