Storyline

This melodrama has a love triangle between Gohar/Dr. Rasik/Dilp Kumar along with a national twist. Leading a life of boredom typical of the colonized leisure class, Vinakumari (Gohar) an her lover Dr. Rasik (Bilimoria) suddenly come across a Gandhian ashram run by Dilip Kumar (Sandow) and other social workers. Vinakumari dedicates herself to the cause of the poor while the ashram faces problems: an entertainment carnival set up by urban businessmen leads the villagers into temptation, a famine breaks out and rapacious landlords, including Bakshiji (Bawa), Vinakumari's guardian, demand money. Eventually Dr. Rasik too joins the group, providing much-needed medical assistance to the workers in the disease-stricken countryside. Written by Sujit R. Varma
