This article needs an improved plot summary. (October 2021)

Raja is a petty thief living around the streets of Bombay, indulging in pickpocketing. In the same city lives Rani, who makes a living through dancing. The two meet and fall in love. Raghu, the owner of a cycle company, lives luxuriously with his wife Sarala and children in Madras. Madhu, his manager, has been misappropriating the company’s funds with the help of his lover Manorama who Raghu is later attracted to. The company is soon closed due to losses, putting Sarala and her children in poverty.

Raghu leaves for Bombay to seek new ventures, leaving his family behind. Sarala goes in search of him. One day, Raja steals Raghu’s purse and discovers in it photographs which reveal that Raghu is his long-lost brother. He goes in search of Raghu, who does not recognise him. Sarala faces many troubles and after several incidents, all problems are solved and the family reunites.[2]
