Subir Kumar (Amitabh Bachchan) is well on his way to becoming India's top pop singer. He is thronged by female fans everywhere, some even proposing marriage. He has no intention of getting married until he meets Uma (Jaya Bachchan), while on a visit to see his Durga Mausi (Durga Khote). Subir encourages Uma to sing alone. However his career starts to falter just as Uma's singing career begins to thrive. Eventually her popularity is greater than his and the seed of jealousy begins to grow. His pride and jealousy begin to tear the marriage apart and the question becomes whether Subir can overcome his jealousy.

Jaya Bachchan won a Filmfare Award in 1974 as Best Actress for her role in Abhimaan.
