National integration movie made by former associates of the Assamese IPTA, calling for communal harmony through its central character Siraj (Sarma), a kind-hearted Muslim who raises an orphaned Hindu child. Composer and actor Bhupen Hazarika, making his debut here, remade the film in 1988, but four decades later the plot, lacking its initial conviction and performative authenticity, seemed maudlin.
