There are moments in our lives when our whole being is put to the test. Our
ideals, our ambitions, are forgotten and we crave for escape. Escape into the
world of our dreams. And such is ‘Anuradha’s’ (Leela Naidu, one time Femina Miss
India) story. The daughter of a rich man, she has everything she desires, yet
she goes on to marry Dr. Nirmal Chowdhary (Balraj Sahni), an idealistic doctor,
who wants to serve the poor in the villages of India. Later when she is shown
what she is missing by living with this poor doctor, she has to make a choice.
Her life or the love of her life.
