Proudness makes one blind to realities. Uma Shankar, the Zamindar of Jugnipur, was not an exception to this axim. Intoxicated by proudness, Uma Shankar took pleasure in putting down once prosperous family of the village kisan, Raja. Contrary to his expectations Raja was becoming popular with the Villagers.

Sagar, son of Uma Shankar, hated Raja in the footsteps of his father. When the beloved sister of Raja, Vidhya, a widow, approached the Village Ustad, Sambhu Master, for the hand of his daughter Neela to be given in marriage to Raja, Uma Shankar wanted Neela to marry Sagar. Sambhu Master got over the delicate situation, by informing them that his daughter   will marry the one who wins a Stick Contest in the Hanuman Temple.

Chanchal, daughter of Uma Shankar, uses the College 'Romeo', Badrangi, to help Sagar and win the contest. Sagar weds Neela. Learning the truth from Badrangi, Raja swears to Chanchal that his life's challenge would be to marry Chanchal.

Did Raja Marry Chanchal?
Did Uma Shankar could be happy for rest of his Life?

Questions and Questions, for which answers are in this mighty spectacle packed movie from the House, producing Motion Pictures for many years.
