Hoping to keep his production company afloat during the lean years of the war, Master Vinayak grudgingly agreed to make this war-effort propaganda piece. The film centers on Durgadas (Dada Salvi) a father of two whose son is stuck in London during the height of the Blitz. Meanwhile, moneylender Ghanshyam (Girish) makes a deal with Durgadas -- he will write off his client's debt if Durgadas lets his daughter marry his son Rajendra (Yakub). Unfortunately, Rajendra and his slinky dancer companion are spies for the Japanese. Yet when the Imperial Army attacks their village, he and everyone else take up arms and fight on the side of Allies.
