Where did you watch this movie?

Choudhury's influential directorial debut breaks new generic ground, depicting tribals and presenting mysticism and sexuality as primal powers. Neera (Putli), a temple priest's daughter. lives amongst tribals. A Kapalik (Sandow), i.e. a devotee of Kali said to possess mystical powers, uses them to acquire tribal !anus. The conflict is between his powers and the shield of innocence around Neera, leading to the villain's destruction. Conflict over land rights was later used extensively by Choudhury's apprentice, Mehboob (e.g. Roti, 1942)
