Based on Bankimchandra’s novel Rajani (1877), this romance addresses property rights. Samar (Kumar) and Tarangini (Sumitra Devi) are childhood lovers. Samar feels betrayed when she obeys her father’s decision and marries a wealthy zamindar. When Samar becomes a successful lawyer, he tries to take revenge on Tarangini and marries a blind flower-girl who, he discovers, owns the property on which the zamindar has built his fortune. The plot is complicated by the fact that the blind girl loves Jatin, the zamindar’s son.
