When their mother dies, a brother and sister are left orphaned. Having sold all their possessions to settle debts they also become homeless and destitute. They set out to find a better life, away from their painful memories. Taking shelter in a remote temple, they encounter an ascetic holy man who allows them to stay there. With the spiritual help of the ascetic and the monetary assistance of an unhappy dancer, the boy's indomitable spirit and indefatigable energy enable the pair to overcome a series of setbacks including the loss of the girl's sight and the sickness of her fiancé. Such is the example set by the boy that both the dancer and the ascetic feel their lives have been enriched by knowing him. Written by van Goethem

This is a shortish highly moral tale, satisfying yet somehow it left me thinking another 20 minutes or so were still needed to wrap it all up. The story takes you logically to the final point and then it's all over, with the young boy gurning with intense emotion at the camera.

Boy and sister find themselves reduced to poverty when their mother dies, but they find protection with a kindly hermit and a rich "dancer" with a past. The boy is working very hard to provide a meagre subsistence but then the sister (a young Nanda) goes blind causing a few more problems! The plot is expertly followed veering between a competent drama to laughable melodrama, but the interpolative music by Desai and Vyas more than make up for it. Lata sang only a few of the numbers - personally I missed her amazing voice, although Geeta Dutt did a fine job even if singing for the young boy. Favourite bits: the Girdhari hymn sung by Lata; the final plea Meri Aan Bhagwan sung by Geeta.

An interesting and nice little film but teaching seemingly endless unassuming self-sacrifice when you have nothing will be eventually rewarded in improbable ways.
