Ravi and his six brothers are the owners of a beautiful farm. The seven brothers named by the seven days of the week Ravi, Som, Mangal,Budh, Guru, Shukra and Sonny are a world unto themselves: uncouth, uncultured, wild, tough, unwashed, dirty, stinking yet they have a deep thread of emotional attachment for one another, and though at times murderous, and vicious in their behavior towards each other, there is a solid underlying love that keeps them bound together.

On one of his monthly visits to the neighbouring town Ravi meets Indu, a nurse and promptly falls for her. He gives up his dirty manner to woo Indu, but keeps from her the fact that there are six dirty specimens at home, for fear that she’ll reject him outright if she learns the truth.

The day Ravi marries Indu and brings her home, all hell is let loose on the farm. She makes up her mind to change these animals into human beings. The first steps are their clothes and personal appearance. Looking more like boys from decent families, the brothers, without Ravi and Indu, go on a picnic and in doing so, meet Seema and her six companions. There is an attempt on Seema’s life which is averted by Som and the gang. They learn that Seema is a handicapped person whose legs are paralysed, and these six girls Asha, Madhu, Aradhana, Prema, Shobhini and Rajni are her constant companions. The girls invite the boys for a Red Cross show in the city. The boys bowled over by the girls are only too eager to accept.

Seema the only ward of Ranjit Singh is to inherit a property of crores on her 21st birthday. So Ranjit is having secret attempts made on her life while all the time posing as a dutiful and affectionate uncle. But no more, he decides. The job of killing Seema, now he gives to Babu, a dangerous killer. Ravi with Indu accompany his brothers to the Red Cross ball. But there, rivalry over the girls crops up ending in a free-for-all.

Ashamed and embarrassed, Indu orders the town out of bounds to the six brothers. Love-torn and separated from their beloved ones the boys become dull and lethargic and the work on the farm suffers.

Ravi decides that the only way out is to promote a reunion between his six brothers and their six girls. Without telling Indu, Ravi and his gang kidnap the girls and bring them to the farm.

But an angry Indu greets them on their return. The girls are tucked away in the farm house in Indu’s care. By now Babu is out to kill Seema. Thus while Seema is on the farm with the brothers and their girl-friends, a cold-blooded killer arrives to turn everything upside down. But the innate love plus the fighting skill of the brothers result in a thrilling, spine-tingling action climax in which Ranjit Singh and his henchmen get their due and the brothers their seven brides.
