Written by Anarkali author Imtiaz Ali Taj and made in Pancholi's Lahore studio, this was mainly a Nurjehan musical about a man seduced by a gold-digging woman, who then kills her and her lover and is jailed. When he is released, he finds employment as a gardener and becomes a father-figure to his employer's son Anwar and to Anwar's fiancee Zeenat (Nurjehan). This allows him to prevent Anwar from perpetuating precisely the same crime for which he had been jailed as history repeats itself because, so the film alleges, men are constantly threatened by women and only paternal wisdom can save them from the untoward desires of women. Future directors Ramesh Saigal and S.K. Ojha assisted on this film.
