Amiya Chkaravarty makes his directorial debut with this Bombay Talkies produced traditionalist melodrama. The film opens with a pair of impoverished siblings -- Uma (Mumtaz Shanti) along with her younger brother Babul -- who dream of fame and fortune on the stage. Their luck changes when they meet theater promoter Janaki Prasad and Uma eventually marries the impresario's self-absorbed younger brother, Nirmal (Ulhas). Not long after Uma gives birth to a son, Nirmal leaves his wife and kid to starve by running away hoping to find fame and fortune. When he finally returns to his family, he finds his wife singing and dancing on-stage and kidnaps the kid. Ten years later, he returns when Uma agrees to fulfill her wifely duties.
