Summary: When Kanhaiyalal (Saigal) is born, an astrologer predicts that upon growing up he shall follow a prostitute, learn to wield a knife and be sentenced to the gallows. The predictions come true but not in the imagined forms: he and his mother find shelter in the house of Saguna (Suraiya), a prostitute who eventually sacrifices her life to save the hero’s. The knife-wielding prediction comes true when he becomes a surgeon. Kanhaiyalal and his mother fight poverty and crime, and his evil stepbrother Jwala Prasad. A well-known Saigal and Suraiya musical that claimed to address the phenomenon of destiny.
