A cop father against criminal son crime drama made in the Indian variant of the film noir style launched by Mukherjee’s megahit Kismet (1943). Kunwar (Ashok Kumar) takes to gambling and gets involved in bad company in spite of his father (Nawab) being a policeman. Although Kunwar is reformed by his gentle betrothed (Jaywant), his past catches up with him in the form of his former crooked sidekick. In the end, Kunwar escapes from jail to avenge the betrayal of a man who was supposedly on the right side of the law, and his father faces him with a gun, torn between his responsibilities as a parent and as a cop. An unusually violent crime film for its time with the hero playing the villain.
