Dr. Anand Kumar (Dev Anand) attains his degree in medicine and re-locates to a small coal mining village to assist the local doctors there. Upon arrival, he is met by the ailing Dr. Prasad and his wife, who hires him on a salary of Rs.250 per month. He meets with the other doctors, namely Dr. Kothari (Vijay Anand) an alcoholic, and Dr. Bhutani (Agha), a dentist. Anand finds that he is saddled with all of Kothari's work as well his own because Kothari is drunk every night. He nevertheless carries on, aided by the local school-teacher, Nisha Patel (Mumtaz), who he eventually marries. One day a proud father, Phoolchand (Sapru), gives a baksheesh to Anand for the safe delivery of his first-born. This does not go well with Mrs. Prasad, so she fires Anand. Meanwhile, Anand's wife is hit by a car and miscarries their child. Anand cannot do anything against the wealthy person (Prem Nath) whose car hits Nisha and caused the death of his unborn child. This accident transforms Anand from a normal, good-natured doctor into a doctor who is after money. Anand and Nisha re-locate to Bombay, where Anand later establishes himself as a leading doctor, is honored for his thesis, and becomes the personal doctor of a leading Bollywood actress, Maltimala (Hema Malini). When Dr. Kothari and Dr. Bhutani come to visit them, they find that while Nisha is still the same good-natured woman, who is now expecting a child, Dr. Anand is a changed individual. The doctor does not keep relations with friends, lives a personal life, remains cold towards his wife, and is sadly unaware that she is even pregnant. Dr. Kothari starts a hospital in the village with the assistance of the late Dr. Prasad's wife. Nisha leaves Dr. Anand to go back to the village. The death of Phoolchand's child at the hand of a dubious surgeon causes Dr. Anand to regret his new life. He goes back to the village. Nisha's pregnancy begins to have complications. Ultimately, Nisha and her child are saved by Dr Kothari's surgery. In the end, Dr. Anand is back in the village with Nisha and his child.

In 1971, a dispute occurred at one cinema in Dadar, when a Marathi movie was replaced with Tere Mere Sapne.[4]

Unlike Anand's previous "Golden" hits, Tere Mere Sapne did not do as well at the box office.[5] However, it included one of Mamatz's best performances[6] and has been included in Anand's top 10 films.[7]
