Revolutionary, symbol-laden film about class conflict in a feudal fishing community. When the fishermen fail to capture a giant shark, the local landlord Anangaprasad Choudhury (Barua), who claims most of the fishermen’s catch for himself, is enraged, esp. when a defiant youth, Mani (Phukan), sets out to catch the fish by himself. Eventually the youth leads a rebellion against the landlord. The wordy film was playwright Bordoloi’s first independent movie.
