Prabhat's adventure movie, set in medieval Rajput court, mainly addresses Rajput notions of chivalry. The legendary warrior Mansingh (Phatak) is the nation's strong man but he is cordially hated even by his own people. Claiming to have been offended by Taramati (Tarkhad), he insists to her eminent father that only a marriage (on terms insulting to her) can placate him. He becomes a tyrant imprisoning large numbers of people, and eventually Taramati's father, also in prison, leads a popular revolt, threatening to kill his son-in-law. Only Taramati's decision to protect her husband resolves the conflict. The film has a rare appearance of the Marathi stage legend, Nanasaheb Phatak. Apte played the heroine's sidekick, Kesar, repeating the two star's earlier screen relationship in Amritmanthan (1934)
. This is ex-cameraman Dhaiber's best-known directorial effort.
