A pregnant Ratna loses her husband, eventually gives birth to a son, Raju, in a hospital where she is treated by renowned Dr. Anand. Four years later, Anand re-enters their lives and starts becoming a frequent visitor. This does not auger well with Ratna's mother-in-law and Bela, her husband's sister, who make her life miserable, eventually forcing Anand to stop visiting. Shortly thereafter Anand gets married to a nurse, Maya Verma. Maya is a spendthrift,does not get along with Anand, and eventually finds out that she cannot conceive. When Anand's dad passes away, he leaves considerable wealth to Anand's child, including a monthly allowance of Rs.10,000/-. Maya initially plots with an advocate, S. Prakash, who is Bela's husband, who had assisted her in getting married to Anand, to try and prove that her late father-in-law was insane, and when that fails she and her aunt, Nurse Sarla Verma, concoct a plot that Ratna's son is really Anand's biological son, leading to their lawyer filing...

A social drama about a widower Meena Kumari with stellar performance
17 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of Meena Kumari's best acted films. She plays a widow with a young child which actually not her own because her own child died at the time of birth but the Dr. delivering the child replaced the baby with his own who was born few hours earlier. This is also her first pairing with Rajendra Kumar with whom she did three or four more films. Rajendra Kumar did a very commendable job as the compassionate doctor and a loving father to the child. The child actor Honey Irani who played Raju had a great chemistry with Meena Kumari and the pair did a great job as a mother and child. Meena Kumari generally does excellent work with children as she did in others like Bhabi Ki Chudiya, though she never had children of her own in real life. Madan Puri was respectable as the senior doctor and Minoo Mumtaz did act very well as the villainous wife of Dr. Anand (Rajendra Kumar). The movie has some very good songs and Devendra Goel's direction was above average. I graded it as being eight out of ten and recommend to Meena Kumari as worth watching.
