Plot: Deepak and Raja run a photo studio, on the banks of the Jhelum, in a houseboat. Deepak and Seema meet and fall in love and want to get married. But Seema’s Parents, a Barrister father Jankidas, and her mother Jankibai will not consent to the marriage till her four elder sisters are married. All the four sisters are faddists. One is literati, a dancer, a singer, and a sports woman. They will only marry the expert and champion from their fields of interest.

Through highly humorous and original pranks Deepak manages to find four grooms for the respective sisters – Prakash, Ashok, Kewal, and Raja himself. In reality, they are no experts but complete novices in their fields. Due to a blunder committed by Kewal, the truth is soon revealed. The exception is Kewal himself who is a swimming champion. The angry girls refuse the marriage proposals.

When the fraud is established the father is fed up and decides to send the girls away. Seema manages to make her sisters see sense. Everyone appears to be happy and things seem to be going the right way. When suddenly Kewal announces that he cannot marry until his sister Shyama ties the knot. Deepak steps in and promises to find a suitable husband for her.

But Deepak is misunderstood. And to his surprise, he finds himself engaged to Shyama. Seema is heartbroken and tells her parents that she is ready to marry any person her parents choose for her. Deepak finally manages to pull himself out of the mess and comes looking for Seema. It is too late. Seema has left the house. With many twists and turns, Deepak locates Seema and brings her back from near death on the brink of a waterfall.

All's well that ends well. All the girls are married to their respective bridegrooms and the parents heave a sigh of relief.
