This one has many more snakes than most Indian snake movies, including fighting cobras, snake wall decorations that come to life, snakes dancing in the air, and lots more. Pritam and Bano are a male and female snake who are turned into humans when they are shot by laser beams from a cobra statue. They dance around sticking their tongues out at each other so we know they're snakes. They are wish-fulfilling snakes who deliver riches to some good samaritans. An evil demon Aghori, sends his thugs to catch the snakes so he can use them to make himself immortal. Pritam and Bano shoot fire from their mouths to fight Aghori, but he lets cobras bite him on the tongue and drinks snake venom to make himself extremely poisonous. When Pritam bites him she is badly injured, but she escapes and is rescued by Bhola, a naive flute-player, who falls in love with a snakeskin hunter's daughter. The rest of the film deals with Bhola's romance and his sister Champa and her no-good husband. Champa is injured so Pritam disguises herself as Champa to protect Bhola from the snakeskin hunters, and Aghori. As always, there's a big dance at the end where Aghori and his snake charmers fight Pritam and her snake-girl backup dancers.

In one fight scene, Aghori changes into a mongoose and fights Bano the snake man. We see a real mongoose and cobra fighting fiercely.
