Hum Kisise Kam Nahi (We Are Not Less Than Anyone) is a 1977 Indian musical comedy film directed by Nasir Hussain and starring Rishi Kapoor, Tariq Khan, Kaajal Kiran and Amjad Khan. The film was a box office hit and won four Filmfare Awards, including Best Music Director for R.D. Burman.
The film revolves around a plot involving diamonds, love, kidnapping and mistaken identities. Rajesh (Rishi Kapoor) is the son of a wealthy man who died in Africa, leaving behind a belt full of diamonds. Kishorilal (Kamal Kapoor) is a businessman who receives the belt from Rajeshs father on his deathbed and flies to India to deliver it to Rajesh. However, he is chased by goons who work for Saudagar Singh (Amjad Khan), a smuggler who wants the diamonds. Kishorilal hides the belt in a bicycle toolbox and loses track of it. The bicycle belongs to Sanjay (Tariq Khan), who is in love with Kajal (Kaajal Kiran), Kishorilals daughter. Saudagar Singh and his partner Baljit (Tom Alter) trick Rajesh into kidnapping Kajal by pretending that Kishorilal has kidnapped Saudagar Singhs son. Rajesh agrees to do so in exchange for the diamonds, unaware that Kajal is his childhood friend. What follows is a series of hilarious situations involving disguises, chases, songs and romance.
