Tragic drama

Mumtaz is the eldest of 8 children and her father AK Hangal is without a job.They are beset by extreme poverty( one would not say so looking at a juicy healthy beauty Mumtaz) and one day Mumtaz discovers her mother mixing poison for the chidren as they had nothing to feed them. Mumtaz decides to take responsibility and go for a job. Even while going for a job mumtaz does not have a decent dress to wear and is forced to wear torn clothes at work much to the pleasure of her lecherous colleagues who look hungrily at her bare flesh. Bowing to pressure from family to get her brother admission to a medical college she runs from pillar to post trying for this until she comes across a lusty doctor who lures her to his clinic and proceeds to help her secure admission and then blackmails her on this pretext to submit to his carnal desires.After being raped by the doctor Mumtaz is stunned when she hears that he is a fraud. Her brother then succeeds in getting admission and the requirement of money forces her to approach her manager. The manager too was hungry for her flesh and invites her to his house to collect the salary advance. At the place the lusty manager threatens to throw her out of the job if she doesnt give up to him. Mumtaz desperate for the money is forced to disrobe in front of the manager who feasts upon her body with uninhibited pleasure. Torn by the regular demands of money from her family Mumtaz is forced to become a prostitute selling her gorgeous body to whoever has money. This way life goes on until her parents start to suspect and her sisters fiance turns out to be one of the customers who had enjoyed her flesh for a fee. She is shunned by her family who give no consideration to the fact that she had done it all for them.They disown her and she ultimately has no one and finds solace in the arms of her long time lover Rajesh Khanna who accepts her knowing her past. Mumtaz's acting is good but is overshadowed as usual by her sexuality which is irresistible. Mumtaz looks delicious and one is forced to empathise with the villains who desire her and get her ,for she is really one sexy item. just sensational. Men may watch the movie only at the risk of spending a sleepless night sighing that they do not have her for company Enjoy
