Synopsis: Sanjeev (Sunil Dutt) is your average movie hero who is on the lookout for his heroine. The moment he sees her in a group of picnicking girls, he recognises his nemesis in Sushma (Waheeda Rehman). The two engage in some preliminary sparring followed by loving duets. When their love is revealed to Sanjeev's parents (Bir Sakuja and Mumtaz Begum) they are delighted with Sushma - not your conservative movie-parents, obviously. Sanjeev's father even engages to talk to her family about it. That's where the couple's trials begin. Sushma is an orphan brought up by 4 eccentric bachelor uncles (the 4 thorns - char kaante - of the title). Each of them has his own ideas about a suitable boy for Sushma.
Uncle 1 (David) is keen on theatre and thinks Sushma should marry a good actor. Uncle 2 (Rashid Khan) is a yoga fanatic and thinks she should marry someone who can stand on his head. Uncle 3 (Dhumal) is extremely pious and thinks only a person well-versed in the mythological texts can prove to be ideal husband for her while Uncle 4 (Johnny Walker) is a fan of modern dancing and his vote goes to someone who can do Rock-n-Roll like Elvis!
The situation is hopeless - how can one man satisfy all these requirements? Anybody else might have given up in despair but our hero is made of sterner stuff and starts on his campaign to woo the uncles. Outsmarting, outdancing, outacting and outpraying his rivals takes a lot of effort on Sanjeev's part and leads to hilarious situations. Does he achieve his goal?
