Film details


Drama centred around a boy's search for his father, never losing his faith in God or succumbing to stealing or begging even when he went hungry. Gopal's father had left him and his mother Kamla, when he was very young. Having married his mother for money, and then having squandered it, running into debt, his father left them, out of shame for what he had done.
