Inder sets his eyes on Rama but Prakash, secretly admiring Rama, tells Inder (Amitabh Bachchan) that she is the kind of girl who can't be lured with the power of money. But, Inder has firm perception that women want only money, bets Prakash that he will lure Rama with his money. After each of his bag of tricks fail, he publishes a book of her poems and gifts it to her. This gesture surprises Rama and is very delighted. One day Inder asks Rama to accompany him.
