Gemini’s fairy-tale adventure continued in the vein of Chandralekha (1948) and Apoorva Sahodarargal (1949), involving the same writer (K. Subbu) and art director (A.K. Sekhar). Chander (Ganesh), rescued when still a child from a drifting raft, falls foul of a villainous senapati (chieftain) (Pran). Exiled to a desolate island, he learns that he is the son of the good Sardar Mangal Sen (Jagirdar). He jumps into the sea whence he is rescued by a foreign ship which takes him to its home port. There Chander falls in love with the local princess, Mandakini (Vyjayanthimala). Returning to his homeland, Chander finds that his father has been imprisoned by the villain. To set things right he has to overcome the might of the state.
