Bhatt described his first feature as revolving around ‘an unusual sexual relationship between a prostitute (Narayan) and two criminals on the run. The film was a box-office disaster.’ The fast paced thriller proclaims its violation of morality codes, as noted theatre personality Dubey’s aggressive dialogues sometimes evoke the Abbas or Sukhdev-type rhetoric attacking corruption. It was banned for 14 months by the censors for mocking the ‘sacred institution of marriage’.
