Chandulal Shah directs this romantic melodrama with a nationalistic bent. Living the life of ennui-laced luxury of India's upper class, young Vinakumari (Gohar) and her beau, Dr. Rasik (E. Bilimoria), happen upon a religious group run by the vaguely Gandhi-like Dilip Kumar (Raja Sandow) along with other socially minded volunteers. Vinakumari immediately recognizes this as her calling and devotes herself utterly to the group. Meanwhile, a carnival created by a shadowy cabal of city-slicker capitalists proves to be so successful in luring peasant farmers into the dissolution and debauchery that the fields go untended and a famine ensues. Soon, Dr. Rasik joins the group.
