Kinara - 1977


Inder (Jeetendra) is a well-off person working along with his uncle (Shreeram Lagoo) as an architect. His uncle is a fan of famous dancer Aarti Sanyal (Hema Malini). On a simple game of snooker, Jeetendra loses the game against his uncle and his uncle asks him to join him at Aarti Sanyal?s concert. On the way to the concert, Inder meets with a near fatal accident.

One day his uncle suggests him to go to Mandu to see the architectural beauty there. He meets Hemamalini there and learns soon that she is the famous dancer herself. She tells him that she has left dancing since 6 months and her grandfather tells him that it is because of an incident that shook her life. Soon, they become more friendly and she ends up telling about her love Chandan (Dharmendra) who calls her Tikoo with love. Her only dream is to publish historical book written by Dharmendra. She tells him that 6 months ago, he died in a car accident on way to her concert. Inder is surprised by this revelation and asks her where the accident exactly took place. He realises that it was his accident in which the person in the oncoming vehicle died. Exremely upset, he calls up his uncle and asks him why it was withheld from his about the other driver?s death. As his stay in Mandu continues, Aarti cries remembering her past. Inder cannot hold it further and tells her that he was in the accident in which her love has died. She becomes extremely upset and tries to snatch the still to be published book from his hand saying that she needs no sympathy from him. He tries to make her understand and in the confusion of trying to take the book, she falls of stairs and sustains injuries. He tries to meet her, but her grandfather tells him that she hates to even hear his name and to come the next day. But in the late hours of night, he hears a car leave and realises that they have left.

He goes back to his home where his uncle advises him to leave her alone if it is only because of sympathy on her. But if he has fallen in love with her, then he should try to win her. Inder explains to his uncle that he went to her grandfather?s house (the address given in the hotel register at Mandoo) but noone was there and he doesn?t know where to find her. His uncle asks his secretary to call up clinics to find out if any lady has come for treatment. They finally find the clinic where Aarti is. Inder goes there where she has undergone eye surgery. The doctor removes the eye bandage but Aarti loses her eyesight. Inder talks to her mother and she asks her mother if it is Inder and gets extremely angry that he is there. The doctor lies and tells her that it is his friend Prakash. Aarti asks for forgiveness and goes home.

He arranges for her show to be performed where he supports her during her dance. She uses the money which she earned from the concert to try to publish Chandan?s book. She gives the book to publisher,finding it empty the publisher tells her that the book she has given is empty. She goes home where Inder comes and tells her that he has brought a surprise for her.
