Summary: A mildly socialist realist (esp. in the music) family drama exemplifying the spirit of camaraderie and sacrifice. Seth Madhavlal’s household includes two sons, Jatin (Surendra) and Kiran (Harish), and the adopted orphan Rekha (Maya). When the trio grow up, both Jatin and Kiran love Rekha. To solve the dilemma Jatin becomes a social outlaw. The love duets of Surendra and Maya Bannerjee are emotionally contrasted with Surendra’s political addresses, the solo Hame hua hai desh nikala and his duet with Jyoti, Aan base pardes sajanava, both being songs of exile.
