Directed by T Prakash Rao, starring Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy and Om Prakash Chibber in the lead roles. This family drama follows a son who accepts his fathers challenge to run his poor family, faces obstacles from his own siblings. Will he succeed in winning the challenge and save his family?
Honest Shankarnath, even though employed in a supervisory capacity, nets only Rs.630/-, and is unable to accede to any of the demands placed by his three school-going children, Ravi, Roopa, and Raja. When the trio declare a hunger-fast until their demands are met, he decides to let them run the household expenses, for a period of six months, by giving Ravi his entire salary. Ravi thinks that he can save a lot of money and get stuff for himself and his siblings - but things go seriously wrong when Raja loses money while gambling; relatives descend on them during Diwali; cash is stolen; and his mother, Padma, becomes seriously ill.
