Prannath finds an infant abandoned in his car on his engagement day. The finding leads to several comedic situations in the film. The film was inspired by Bachelor Mother (1939), directed by Garson Kanin and starring Ginger Rogers. The story was reversed in Kunwara Baap, with the hero getting landed with the child.

Plot

Prannath (Kishore Sahu) goes to the jeweller’s to buy a ring for his to-be fiancée. While he is in the store, an unwed mother leaves her infant in the back of Prannath’s car. When he comes out he realises he’s stuck with the baby much to his discomfiture as his betrothed refuses to believe his story. The situation gives rise to several funny sequences till the villainous father of the child admits to being the real father and agrees to marry the mother of the abandoned child.
