Summary: Shot on location in a dilapidated mansion, Abbas’s film suggests that the old feudal order must be allowed to fade away with dignity while its descendants must take their cue from ‘the people’ rather than from entrepreneurs. An old nawab, Aasmaan (Kapoor), refuses the wealth offered by capitalists who want to turn his palace into a hotel. His dissolute playboy son Salim (Roy) is ultimately reformed by a virtuous young woman, Salma (Parkar).
