Melodrama about a deaf and dumb couple who, with the aid of a blind man, overcome the odds of living in a hostile and uncaring society. Haricharan (Kumar) and Aarti (Bhaduri) are plagued by Aarti’s evil brother (Asrani) as they struggle to bring up their son notwithstanding their disabilities. When their son refuses to marry a disabled girl, Haricharan forces a happy ending. Probably Gulzar’s most heavy- handed drama, further weighed down by an emphatic score.
