This movie echoes the theme of another Prem Nazir starrer under the Iqbal Pictures, Aayisha , the theme being the need for capital to respect the contribution of labour and not exploit it. In this movie Prem Nazir 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 Nazir 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 Prem Nazirwhose daughter, played by Ambika, falls for, while he has fallen for a rich girl.
An enjoyable movie because of the strong performance by Nazir, who brings his trademark intensity to the role, and because of the reminder of days when Malayalam 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 Delhi and Bangaluru.
