Summary: Melodrama featuring a thikadar (forest contractor), a somewhat remote figure like the landscape in which he operates. The villain is the plantation-owner named Abani Haldar, with a beautiful daughter, Latika. The thikadar saves Haldar in an accident, while later it is revealed that Haldar killed the thikadar's father and left his wife and children for dead. Latika, who loves the thikadar, succeeds in preventing the forester from taking revenge for those crimes. The playwright Tulsi Lahiri, an influential figure who helped introduce realism to the post-WW2 Bengali theatre with plays like Chhenra Tar, Pathik and Dukhirlman (the latter two were also filmed, in 1939/1953 and 1954 respectively), wrote, scored and acted in this film noted for its extensive location shooting and crowd scenes showing the lives of plantation workers.
