The uneducated and landless Ghulam Hussain (Shaikh) leaves his wife Khairun (Patil) in his native village in UP to go to Bombay in search of work. He becomes a cab driver and the film intercuts his struggles in the city with those of his wife while she awaits his infrequent letters and remittances. The film’s best moments are in the sequences with the close-knit group of cabbies who operate a kind of subterranean jungle-telegraph. Muzaffar Ali’s FFC-sponsored debut features a typical and characteristically sensitive Smita Patil performance as a rural belle.
