Modi's tale of incest starts when Gyan (Khan) goes to Africa and entrusts his wife Shobha (Akhtar) to his bosom pal Rasik (Chandramohan). The two have an affair resulting in the child Indira (Sheela). On his return, Gyan assumes the child to be his and he is delighted when later she falls in love with Rasik's son Madan (Naval), much to Rasik and Shobha's consternation. As in his other social melodramas (e.g. Jailor, 1938 and 1958
), Modi deploys a pathological sexuality to present feudal values as laws of nature.
