Kalu is a taxi-driver in Mumbai, India. He has two women who love him and would like to marry him. Kalu first wants to establish himself and become rich, before he can even think of marriage. One of the women who loves him has a father who is involved in gangster-type activities. He would like Kalu to join him so that he can get a rich son. Kalu now has to decide whether to become rich quick or to sleep better.
