For the first time actor-director Dev Anand is behind camera and presents a beautiful love story moving across continents and shot almost entirely in Copenhagen, with it picturesque backdrops offering a visual delight.

Gautam (Manu Garg) the son of a wealthy father, arrives in Copenhagen in search of personal fortune. Gautam had left his beloved Chanda (Mink, a poor slum girl) behind in India, with the promise of striking it rich abroad and returning back to her.

Gautam is confronted with a weird request by the parents of Pinky (Anita Ayoob) - a young carefree girl of Indian origin, in complete harmony with Danish surroundings.

The parents take Gautam into confidence and solicit his help to play a game of love with Pinky just to take her away from Kim (Akshay Anand). They disapprove of Kim, a Danish boy. Besides, Kim is also involved with a Danish girl Christine (Maja Riis). In the centre of all these happenings Pinky's granny has her own game plan of not only reforming Pinky, but also get her married to a young Indian settled in Denmark called Prem whose main business is drug trafficking which is unknown to the family. The story takes on an interesting twist, when Gutam whilst at his love-play with Pinky, while Chanda is awaiting Gautam's return back to India and into her arms. While Kim on the other hand is angry jealous and crestfallen. This puts Gautam in a dilemma.

This beautiful power of love and the intricate emotional situation it creates in the lives of four youngsters, has been exquisitely handled presented by writer-director Dev Anand in PYAR KA TARANA.
