Raghu Shukla(Sanjeev Kumar) lives with his wife Sarojini(Mala Sinha), sons Naresh (Anil Dhawan) and Ramesh (Rakesh Pandey), an unmarried daughter Seema (Moushumi Chatterjee) and a nephew Prabhu (Deven Varma). Naresh is married to Sudha (Aruna Irani) and Ramesh to Shobha (Alka). Seema stays away for studies in a hostel. When the family learns about Raghu's retirement, they are excited about getting his retirement benefits. When Raghu informs that he has cleared his debts with this amount and plans to depend on his sons, everyone is disappointed. Naresh informs his plans to shift to Bombay and he can accommodate his mother while Ramesh informs that he can accommodate father. Thus the parents are bound to live separately with the sons. In Bombay, Sarojini's life is confined within the house and is ill-treated. On the other hand, Raghu is dependent on his son's family. After visiting her parents, Seema decides to take an extreme step for their solace and to the surprise of her boyfriend Ajay (Vinod Mehra) and the Shukla family. The rest of the film shows the changes that occur in the Shukla family on account of Seema's extreme step.
