Summary
The story, set off by elaborate studio numbers, is a melodrama echoing those of Bombay's mass -audience movies and the sexy bestsellers of the film's heroine, American authoress Lucia Lane. Visiting India in search of "new material", she becomes romantically involved with handsome movie star Vikram. When that doesn't work out, she flees to an sashram to take up the spiritual life. That also - hilariously - doesn't work out, and the ill-fated couple get together again, with explosive results"--Continer
