It was the story of a smooth talking tourist guide Raju (Dev Anand) who cons people. He meets a woman Rosie (Waheeda Rahman) who is unhappily married and dreams of being an dancer and singer. Everyone turns hostile when they find out about his relationship with Rosie. He helps her realise her dreams. She gets rich and he squanders her money in gambling. He gets caught in a case of fraudulence and loses everything.
Once out of jail, he becomes Swami Raju and when the village is hit by famine, they call on him to perform a miracle.
The movie also had some brilliant music like Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai by Lata Mangeshkar and a duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, Gaata Rahe Mera Dil.
