Life goes on happily for the couple, Ravi (Amol Palekar) and Radha (Poornima) who live with their only daughter until Father John arrives in the city with a young boy Raju, Ravi's son from an affair with Reetha (Ambika) before his marriage to Radha. Now he has to keep the boy with him for a month before Father John takes the boy abroad.
Ravi introduces the boy to his wife as the son of a dead friend, George, and she happily accepts to keep the boy with them. But the truth emerges when the 'dead friend' visits their house. The six-year-long marriage between Ravi and Radha shatters.
The film's plot is inspired from novel "Man, Woman and Child" by Erich Segal.

The song "Thumbi Vaa" was liked by many people and got remade in Telugu, Kannada and Hindi.
