Summary: Big melodrama set in the 19th C. Thuggee, a cult of bandits in Central India. Bhawani Prasad (Jayant), a legendary bandit whose own relatives have threatened to destroy him, adopts his grandson Kundan against the wishes of his wife (Khote) in order to initiate him into the ancestral profession. The boy, however, grows up (D. Kumar) into a pacificist. When his cousins (Sahni, Sanjeev Kumar) try to kill him, he is saved by a mysterious dancer (Vyjayanthimala). The original story was by noted Marxist novelist Mahashweta Devi.
