(Certified: Mar 31, 1959)
Sujata (Nutan) gets adopted by the Chowdhury family, which consists of dad Upendranath (Tarun Bose); mom Charu (Sulochana Latkar); and a daughter, Rama (Shashikala), and is treated just like a daughter. Sujata grows up in this caring and nuturing household and leads a very comfortable life. Both Sujata and Rama are now of marriageable age. A young man, Adhir (Sunil Dutt), comes to the Chowdhury household with a view to marry. He meets Sujata and falls in love with her. When he informs his aunt (Lalita Pawar) of this decision, she is aghast, as she knows that Sujata is not only of a lower caste but also an untouchable, and she wants Adhir to marry Rama, or will not permit him to live with her. While at the Chowdhury household, Charu wants Sujata to leave the house immediately, as she will have nothing to do with her anymore. Will Adhir and Sujata be ever married or will they be two more victims to the caste system?
