A former theater owner and his crippled daughter live in poverty until a chance encounter with a young pickpocket brings romance for the petty criminal and daughter as well as a chance by the father to get back at the villainous new theater owner who ousted him from the business years before.
This is considered Indian cinema's first blockbuster as it created an all time record continuously running for more than three and half years at a single cinema Roxy in Calcutta, a record broken by 'Sholay' 37 years later.
This was the first Hindi film to feature an anti-hero.
