Ram Aur Shyam (1967) Movie Plot: Ram (Dilip Kumar) is a wealthy person yet very timid and fearful and that is why the overall control of his property and estates is being looked after by Gajendra (Pran) who is husband of his sister Sulakshana (Nirupa Roy) with the help of his Mother (Kamini Kaushal) and cunning Munim (Kanhaiya Lal). Sulakshana has a son Kuku who loves his maternal uncle very much but is helpless just like his mother. Gajendra wants Ram to marry with Anjana (Waheed Rehman), a very rich girl, to get a big amount of dowry. But Anjana does not like Ram due to his timid nature.

Shyam absconds from his house when his mother scolds him for not doing anything. On the same time Ram also manages to escape from his house. Gajendra stars finding Ram but he finds Shyam instead. Now Gajendra has to face Shyam who is not at all timid like his Ram who replaces Shyam inadvertently.
