Amol Palekar - as Ram & Lakshman Prasad Sharma
Utpal Dutt - Bhawani Shankar (Ram's Boss)
Bindiya Goswami - Urmila
David - Palekar's uncle Dr. Kedar
Ram Prasad (Amol Palekar) is a young man in search of a job. His Uncle, Dr Kedar (David) tells him about a well-paid job and Ram Prasad goes to check it out. He meets the opinionated, old-fashioned boss, Bhavani Shankar (Utpal Dutt), who declares that modern-day young men are useless, time-wasting creatures who don't even sport a manly mustache. Ram is relieved that he does have a mustache! He gets the job but complications arise when he wants to go for a cricket match, setting off a zany trail of lies and subterfuges as Ram invents a ne-er-do-well younger brother Lakshman to account for all his own shortcomings! Hrishikesh Mukherjee's comic genius sparkles, Utpal Dutt's character is unforgettably funny and the situations keep audiences laughing non-stop. R D Burman's great soundtrack includes 'Aane Waala Pal'. Bindiya Goswami plays the leading lady.
