"DO PREMEE" is not a story, not a tale but a truth of life. It is happening everywhere and in all homes in slightly varying methods. "DO PREMEE" is the story of opposition of the older generation to the younger generation. It is the opposition of orthodox and modern thinking. It is the eternal love story in a new setting. The setting of beautiful Kashmir and beautiful Bombay.

It is the story about youthful romance of Chetan (Rishi Kapoor) and Payal (Maushumi Chatterji). It is also the story of Payal's Dad, Colonel Bhagwant Singh (Om Prakash) extremely rough and strict attitude on one hand and Chetan's father Daulatram (I.S. Johar), a notorious gambler extremely lenient and easy attitude, on the other. Lost in the world of intoxication Geeta (Geeta Behl), a wild love-born heiress has her own story to tell and so has Mahayogi (Raj Bharti), a saintly figure running the Prem-Ashram.

"DO PREMEE" cannot be read. It can be felt, it can be seen.
