Ramesh Saigal directs this passionately nationalistic, though politically outdated, melodrama. Hearing Indian patriot Subhash Chandra Bose's exhortation for subcontinent youths to fight against colonialism, idealist lad Shekhar (Ashok Kumar) leaves his life of privilege to join the Indian National Army. Meanwhile in Singapore, Shekhar's elder brother Suresh (Shyam) -- an officer in the British army -- is in cahoots with a nefarious spy ring led by the aptly named Boss (Mubarak) and his decadent floozy moll Dolly (Kuldip). When the pure-hearted Shekhar falls for Lily (Nalini Jaywant) -- Dolly's sister, the evil Boss uses their relationship to infiltrate the INA. When war breaks out, the two siblings fight each other face-to-face, resulting in Shekhar getting horribly wounded. Later, our hero blows himself up when trying to wire a railroad bridge.
