Veteran Marathi filmmaker V. Shantaram directs this Prabhat Films-produced melodrama about communal harmony in a rural village. The film centers on best friends Mizra (Gajanan Jagirdar) and Patil (played by Keshavrao Date in the Marathi version and Mazhar Khan in the Hindi), who are also the elders of their rural hamlet. When a wealthy industrialist named Omkar unveils a plan to enlarge the local dam, the two adamantly protest against it. Omkar has Patil fired from his job and then frames he and his son for burning down a neighborhood house. The incident puts a riff between the lifelong friends. When the dam eventually bursts -- in a sequence that proved to quite influential -- the two friends reconcile as they die in one another's arms.
