Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Bollywood film icon Raj Kapoor stars in this melodrama -- directed by Mahesh Kaul -- about the troubles and travails of a beautiful young country lass. Abandoned by her family, the low-caste Gopta (Tripti Mitra) is left at the home of the handsome upper-caste Mohan (Kapoor). Though she has fallen for the lad, he lusts for the glamour and sophisticated ways of movie star Neela Devi. Just when the longing and powerlessness of her situation drives his wife insane, Mohan decides that he in fact prefers Gopta over the fickle and demanding Devi.
