4 Very Good

Mangal Singh (Rajesh Khanna) has been a career criminal, whose career began with stealing food to keep from starving, and thence got him in trouble with the law. He does get arrested, tried in Court, found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged. He dramatically escapes with the help of underworld don, Suraj (Pinchoo Kapoor), ends up in a small village in Northern India, and masquerades as a school-teacher with the help of local restaurant-owner, Bijli (Mumtaz). He takes on the identity of Ramu, a friend of Shravan (Vijay Arora), and goes to live with Shravan's parents, Lalaji (Om Prakash) and Malti (Nirupa Roy), little knowing that they are the parents of a man he killed while escaping from the police.
