The generation after the world War II and especially youths and students of to-day, the world over, have started indulging themselves in the acts of violence. Lately, such incidents have been taking place here in our country too. There is a general clamor that the children of today are tending to become mobsters. Is there anybody who is prepared to stop them and guide them back to the right path? None !

That's what Dr. Darayan Gupta exactly thought after watching closely a gang of such boys in his neighbourhood. Teachers in the school refused to shoulder this responsibility and the parents at home were equally indifferent and negligent of their duties towards their offspring.
Dr. Gupta accepted the challenge of time and embarked upon to reform him.

But Ramu, having been prejudiced with the Doctor in his first meeting, felt otherwise ! He took an obstructive view of whatever the doctor attempted to do for them. He even resorted to inflicting on him physical injuries besides the insults that he poured on him day in and day out.
But doctor Gupta was a man of strong will and he stood on the burning deck come what may ! Even to the extent of endangering his life. But at last the truth dawns on Ramu and the doctor succeeds in his mission. How he accomplishes this task shall better be seen and enjoyed on the screen n Supra Films' maiden offering "Jyote Jale".
