Lala Bansilal got a telegram from Bombay that a decent residential place and service were awaiting for his son Shekhar….and Shekhar’s would be Father-in-law was also staying at Bombay.

Impassioned to see his would-be-wife, Shekhar jumped in to the first available train wherein he met a vivacious dance teacher Neena, and in no time he was a victim of love-at-first sight. Obviously, he started hiding away from his father-in-law.

On reaching Bombay, Shekhar found in his suit case a small mysterious bag containing diamonds worth millions, which became a great calamity for him, and he had to play hide and seek with death at every step!

Shekhar arrived at Bombay, on an invitation from Lala Sunderlal who immediately posted him in a very high position, in his textile mill, where and additional calamity fell on Shekhar-as Madhu the crack daughter of Sunderlal irrevocably decided to get wedded to Shekhar. On the other side when Shekhar’s father came to know that Shekhar never went to his father-in-law, he rushed to Bombay and after a lot of hesitation when Shekhar accompanied his father to his Sasural, he was stunned to find Neena to be his would-be bride!

One day when Shekhar came across a dancer of Uma Hotel searching her lost brother-and was invited to dine and dance at her hotel-Shekhar came to know that a big gang of smugglers was behind that bag of diamonds…..Shekhar and his chum Bhagwan immediately decided to trace out these gangsters with the help of the police.

How did they succeed in destroying the smugglers gang? How the misunderstanding of Neena could be removed? How Shekhar could make himself free from the clutches of crack Madhu? What big sacrifice dancer Aruna gave?- To get the satisfactory solutions to these questions, better see “Chale Hain Sasural” at the earliest.
