"Abhimanyu" means 'Master of all Arts', so was our Hero a village lad astounding with humanity and humility. When henchman of a money lendress Parvati Devi beat an old farmer ABHIMANYU could not tolerate the injustice. He punished the henchman red and blue.

Infuriated by the insult, Parvati first tried her hand by asking Manu's (nick name of Abhimanyu) father to repay the loan, Manu cleared it but Parvati Devi's son Pannalal who was as inhuman as his mother refused to have received it. Manu provoked to the saturation point gave Pannalal a severe beating.

The son to avenge the insult of his manhood raped Manu's sister. Manu vowed to get his sister married to Pannalal as it was wished by Tulsi (Hero's sister) when Manu saved her from committing suicide.

Pannalal sister Geeta, snubish by nature jeers at Manu whenever both come to face to face.

Manu with the lapse of time emerges as a Pop singer with his Tulsi as of world repute on screen. Geeta and Pannalal are infuriated by him and Tulsi and later all four are bound in red knot.

The story takes a dramatic turn when Panna & Geeta realise that ABHIMANYU and Cali are none else but the same village lad Mannu & Tulsi. Panna tortures Tulsi for this betrayal but Tulsi as a perfect Indian wife keep her mouth shut.

Manu is told of these happenings and with his plans and manouvering gets his sister the love of her husband but how this happens in a world of charm, which you all can enjoy when you watch "ABHUMANYU" Master of All Arts.
