(Certified: Dec 14, 1951)
Raju (Raj Kapoor) lives as a derelict as a result of being estranged from his bitter father (Prithviraj Kapoor), a district judge, who threw Raju's mother (Leela Chitnis) out of the house years ago. Raju shacks up with a criminal Jagga (K N Singh) as his surrogate father only to realize that the man is actually responsible for the original misunderstanding between his parents. Raju kills him, and then tries killing his father, but fails, is arrested, and is taken to court right before his very own father, who presides there as the Judge. Raju has his childhood girlfriend Rita (Nargis) as his legal representative, and the onus is now on his father, who must pass judgment without showing any personal sentiment.
