Our lyrical film, then, is a story of certain human beings who are Madhosh in one or the other sense of that delightfully thrilling word. Sardar Rambhaji is a virtual tyrant, intoxicated with power. He has brought up his son Raya in his own image, with the result that Raya has been leading a reckless life, irresponsive to all finer sentiments and human values. But the hand of fate brings him in contact with Soni and when he is drunk deep in the nectar of true love, his better self prevails and he atones for his misdeeds by doing the most splendid act of his mis-spent life in his last moments. Raina, the fire-flame of the jungle and daughter of the Bhil Chieftain Shakriya, is also lost in her sublime love for Raya. But her love leads her to put away her own selfishness, and in the best tradition of noble womanhood she decides to be on the side of Soni, who is her rival in love for Raya. Bhujba Maharaj, the Saint of Sajalpur and father of Soni, does all that is humanly possible to end the feud of a century between his family and that of Sardar Rambhaji. How everyone emerges winner is to be seen on silver screen.
