The Story of Dosti




The film begins with Ramnath "Ramu" Gupta (Somaya), a school-going boy whose father dies in an accident while working in a factory. When the factory refuses to pay compensation to his family, his mother faints due to shock and falls down the stairs. Ramu also gets injured in an accident and becomes crippled. He is thrown out of his home by his relatives and wanders around the streets of Mumbai. He meets Mohan (Sawant), a blind boy who has a similar background: Mohan has a sister, Meena (Uma Rajoo), who left for Mumbai to find work as a nurse to pay for her brother's treatment. Mohan eventually left his village after his caretaker died.


Ramu and Mohan become friends and decide to help each other. Ramu is good at playing the harmonica while Mohan is good at singing. They collaborate and sing songs on the road to earn money from pedestrians. Ramu wants to finish his studies, so he applies for admission in a school with Mohan's help. They also befriend a small girl, Manjula (Baby Farida), who is the sister of a rich man, Ashok (Sanjay Khan). Manjula suffers from rheumatic heart disease and both the boys hope she would help them out.


Ramu gets admitted to the school after performing well on the entrance test. He also moves to a new house in a slum with Mohan after someone tries to steal their money while they slept on the footpath. Their new neighbor is Mausi (Leela Mishra), who lives with her teenage daughter and son, and treats Ramu and Mohan as her own sons. In school, Ramu excels in studies despite being ridiculed by richer students who do not consider him their equal. The headmaster (Abhi Bhattacharya) and teacher Sharma Ji (Nana Palsikar) look after Ramu and Sharma Ji declares himself as Ramu's guardian.


One day, Sharma Ji visits Ramu's house and notices that the neighborhood is unfit for his studies. He suggests that Ramu move in with him, but Ramu does not want to leave Mohan alone. Sharma Ji then arranges for Mohan's eye operation with Ashok's help. Meanwhile, Meena returns to Mumbai after finding out that her brother is alive. She meets Ashok at his office and tells him about her brother. Ashok realizes that she is talking about Mohan and decides to reunite them.


On the day of Mohan's operation, Ramu goes to school to take his final exams. He faces a tough question paper but manages to complete it with confidence. He then rushes to the hospital to see Mohan. However, he meets with an accident on the way and loses consciousness. He is taken to the same hospital where Mohan is undergoing surgery.


Mohan's operation is successful and he regains his eyesight. He is overjoyed to see his sister Meena after a long time. He also meets Ashok who tells him that he loves Meena and wants to marry her. Mohan agrees to their relationship but asks about Ramu's whereabouts.


Ashok takes him to Ramu's ward where they find him lying unconscious on a bed. The doctor tells them that Ramu has suffered a severe head injury and may not survive. Mohan breaks down in tears and prays for his friend's life.


The film ends with Ramu regaining consciousness and opening his eyes. He sees Mohan standing beside him with tears in his eyes. He smiles weakly and says "Mohan". Mohan hugs him tightly and says "Ramu". They both express their gratitude for each other's friendship.
