The film revolves around the character of Soorma Bhopali, played by Jagdeep who owns a timber mart. He happens to be very innocent and honest to the core, due to which people always take him for a ride. Soorma Bhopali wants to distribute all this wealth towards the welfare of humanity. Soorma's identical step brother, Dilwar Khan Dilwala, played by Jagdeep again, keeps claiming that half of Soorma's inherited wealth belongs to him. Soorma inherited a beautiful and priceless necklace from his mother, which he has to give to the woman who he decides to marry.
In order to steal this valuable necklace from Soorma, some prominent smugglers chalk out a plan and send Sitara, a stage dancer from Bombay to lure him. Soon, Soorma, being as innocent that he is, gets trapped in the smugglers' shrewdly knitted web. Soorma gets completely mesmerized by Sitara and starts believing that she is the woman that he has been waiting for all this while.
He takes the necklace with him and follows her to Bombay, where he meets Samba and Kaalia, two small time frauds who help Soorma to revive the necklace and all his belongings from the smugglers. What follows is a complete pandemonium, coupled with some amazing comedy punches.
Watch the movie to find out whether Soorma is able to adorn his bride with the invaluable necklace or does he fall prey to the cruel activities of the smugglers.
