Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Mohan Kumar directed this classic, Hindi-language Indian drama from 1964, a slice-of-life chronicle with strong neorealist influences. The saga concerns the goings on in a family, where the patriarch breadwinner slaves and struggles day and night to ensure that his son, Baldev, can fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor. Tragically, although everything goes perfectly for Baldev - he succeeds in his medical career, and his beautiful girlfriend's rich father agrees to their marriage - he fails to imbibe the lesson imparted to him by his father, and in fact turns his back on the entire family, refusing to help them financially while at the pinnacle of his own success.
