Storyline

Mr. Sinha runs a textile mill, and shares his profits by paying generous wages and bonuses to his employees. After his passing, his son, Hiralal, takes over and changes everything in order to maximize profits. This brings him into conflict with his employees including Dinanath Saxena. When Dinanath openly confronts Hiralal in a public meeting, Hiralal wants him to tender a written apology, but Dinanath instead resigns and decides to open his very own mill with the help of a struggling Engineer, Ashok Mathur. They do eventually succeed, go into production, hire employees, and soon earn a good reputation. Dinanath gets his daughter, Meena, married to Ashok much to the chagrin of Smita, the daughter of multi-millionaire Kundanlal Batra, who had expected Ashok to marry her. She soon concocts a scheme to bring discord in the Sinha family, and also ensure Ashok's ruin. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Dignity of Labour
14 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie echoes the theme of another Dilip Kumar starrer under the Chopra banner, Naya Daur (New Road), the theme being the need for capital to respect the contribution of labour and not exploit it. In this movie Dilip Kumar throws in his job when he joins other workers in funeral of a worker killed in an industrial accident, and the management wants to dock their wages. What happens next is that Kumar builds his own mill on the basis of social justice.

The romantic element involves the poor textile engineer taken in and virtually adopted as a son by Dilip Kumarwhose daughter, played by Padmini Kolhapure, falls for, while he has fallen for a rich girl.

An enjoyable movie because of the strong performance by Kumar, who brings his trademark intensity to the role, and because of the reminder of days when Hindi cinema could produce movies that questioned the status quo, and not just endorsed it, as in the recent crop of movies set among mega-rich NRIs in New York and Canada.
