Manoharilal (Pran), a widower and a rich man has 6 children and two siblings. He is a womanizer and he wants to marry a young lady, not for caring him and his family, but only for physical relationship. He is now in search for a woman and he arranges a broker for this purpose. The lady whom he wants to marry should have the following features:

“Her face should be as beautiful as Saira Banu,

From neck to hip, her figure should be like Helen,

Hip and walks like Vyjayanthimala

In Total effect she should be like PADMINI.”

Suresh is studying his final year. He needs to remit his fees. Parvathi seeked help from many people including her lover, but no one could help her.

While she returns home, she heard conversation between her brother and a marriage broker speaking about Manoharilal’s proposal to Parvathi. Even though the man is rich, Suresh and mother did not accept the proposal. But Parvathi agreed the proposal and asked the broker to bring him to a temple nearby on next day evening 5 pm. Suresh became very sad and told, “I know why you are marrying that old man. It is for us, for my studies, right? But there are many ways to get money to remit my fee. Sister you please stay back from the proposal. After I become a doctor, I will care my siblings”. But Parvathi don’t agree. She was worried that after he becomes a doctor and marries a girl, he could not care his siblings. But he promised that he will not marry or even fall in love till his siblings were all married.
