Summary: An efficient crime thriller notable as the film
which the unemployed psychotic murderer
Jayaprakash cited as the inspiration for his
slaughter of a large family in Madras. The claim
hit the headlines and ensured the film’s boxoffice
success. The plot concerns a wayward
son, Kumar, of an equally wayward father.
Kumar steals museum pieces with the help of a
security officer. He kills a young woman
(shown before the credit titles) and marries the
victim’s sister, Devi (Nalini), who finds out
about her husband’s criminal activities and,
with the help of her brother-in-law, exposes
Kumar to the police.
