Following up on the success of Prem Sanyas and Shiraz, director Franz Osten and star Himansu Rai team up again to spin this melodramatic romantic epic. Ranjit (Charu Roy) and the nefarious Sohan (Rai) are kings with a passion for gambling and the same woman -- Sunita (Seeta Devi). One day Ranjit bets it all in a crooked game of craps and loses it all -- his crown and his love -- and is forced to become Ranjit's slave. Eventually Sohan's evil deeds are uncovered and he is herded off a cliff by an indignant mob, led by Ranjit. Sunita and Ranjit are reunited, capping their bliss with a big passionate kiss.
