(Released: Jul 20, 1984)
Village-based widower postmaster Shambunath is upset with his unemployed slacker son, Rajnath (Kamal Hassan), who is also a trouble-maker. He suddenly passes away, and Rajnath re-locates to live with his married sister, Malti (Tanuja), and her family. It is here he will not only face abuse and humiliation, but also be asked to do all housework, and regarded as a jinx. He is then befriended by a wealthy male, Kalpnath Rai (Sanjeev Kumar), who believes him to be his lucky mascot after he not only wins at the races; but also a Court case; becomes a parent; and adopts him. He even permits Rajnath's blind girlfriend, Naina (Poonam Dhillon), to live in his palatial mansion, has her sight restored through Dr. Bhatnagar (Vijay Arora), and wants the couple to get married soon. Things change after Rajnath overhears Kalpnath telling Naina that she cannot marry him; while Lakshmi Rai prepares to accuse him of attempting to kill her child.
