Chakravarty’s last film was completed after his death by Bose. It is a melodrama about Pushpa (Vyjayanthimala) who loves and marries a small-time puppeteer (Kaul). She becomes a famous dancer in the theatre of the benevolent Loknath (Sahni) and gets embroiled in the man’s tragic life, estranging her from her husband. A Vyjayanthimala vehicle, the film consists of expensively staged dance sequences loosely strung together, including the hit number Bagad bam baaje damaroo.
