Kala Pani (1958)
- Summaries (2)
Based on A.J.Cronin's 'Beyond This Place', this movie narrates the story of an untiring crusade for justice. A young man, learning about his father's wrongful implication in a fifteen-year-old murder, vows to bring the true criminals to justice and release his innocent father from 'kaala paani' (life imprisonment), for which he enlists the help of a press reporter, a retired police inspector and an unwitting prostitute who happens to possess some key evidence.
Karan Mehra lives with his widowed mother in a city in India. One day his mother tells him that she is not really a widow, that her husband, Shankerlal, is still alive, serving a life sentence in prison in Hyderabad for killing a prostitute by the name of Mala. She had decided to not have anything to do with him when she found out that he was having an affair with Mala. Karan wants to see his father, and accordingly travels to Hyderabad, meets his father, who convinces him of his innocence. Karan decides to do some research of his own and delves into old newspapers dating back to 1943 when the British ruled India. It is here that he meets and falls in love with Asha, a Reporter, who also happens to be the niece of his landlord. Then one day Asha finds out that Karan has been secretly visiting a prostitute by the name of Kishori, and decides not to have to do anything with him. It looks like Karan is following in his father's foot-steps, which may well lead to history repeating itself, with Karan alienating his mother, ending up in prison or even facing the death sentence.
