A cautionary tale about wealth not bringing happiness. The blind Mohan lives in a village with his ward Radha. He wins a fortune with a sweep stake ticket sold to him by the tramp Ramesh, who claims his due and begins to take over Mohan’s life, making him move to the city and getting him married to Chinta, a prostitute. When Mohan’s eyesight is restored, he finds that his wife is having an affair with Ramesh. Mohan takes revenge and eventually lands up in his old village, a poor man, but with Radha still unchanged, waiting for him.
