Love is a bondage - It was-now-a-day's it is free. This is the age of Free-Love or at least that is what to-day's youth think---- --Let us presume it is Free That means any hand can have an access to any waist--and that Loving hand can slowly reach the neck the Finish; Death.

That is how death came upon secretaries of one Mr. Mohan Oberoi a big business magnet who proffessed Free Love. He used to employ innocent poor, inexperienced girls, and exploited their talents to the maximum. And there was one Geeta, a girl of that categarey, in dire need of a job to support her brothers and sisters. She was dreaming of marrying Ramesh a lawyer in the making, who desisted her joining any proffession. But those were only dreams she could not go jobless-and fate brought her to an empty chair in Mohan's office and that is where the things started. Her office collegues warned her against Mohan trap and she became cautious. Mohan felt it and found out the source of her knowledge. 

There was another murder-but by this time she was under the heavy burden of Mohan who bestowed all worldly luxuries to her. She couldn't leave the job now-and had to carry on till Ramesh got a job. 

Mohan was a deep manipultor, and he took Geeta to Delhi to attend to a job-where she fell into his web. 

Her dreams where shattered, Her love was finished. But she could not finish herself. If at all she was to live, it was either as Mohan's wife or no life. But death came upon again, not on her but to another secretary, and this time Mohan was caught But was Mohan the Murderer, no and this Geeta and Ramesh by now knew very well. Ramesh tried to save him from sentence but odds were against Mohan. He was sentanced Ramesh atthough hurt in leave felt it as a proffessional defeat and he tried hard to find out the real culprit. And this he did, but could Mohan be saved could Ramesh win to get over the defeat. This you will. See on the Screen.
