Plot Summary:

The film spans a period of about twenty years, starting a few years before independence. The film is the story of Thai Saheb, the second wife of a man who is deeply involved in the freedom movement despite being a Landlord. Both Thai and Appa Saheb’s first wife are childless. She is told that her husband has decided to adopt her brother Venkoba’s son Nanu as his heir. After Independence, Appa Saheb continues his political activities. Venkoba takes charge of the household. Thai wins affection of Nanu, who gradually falls in love with Manjari, daughter of Appa Saheb’s mistress Chandri. But when told this is incestuous, he leaves home and takes to drinking. Later, Appa is declared a communist, and Thai fears he may have been killed. This time when Nanu says he wants to be relieved of the burden of adoption so that he can lead his life in his own way, she breaks the law to get him what he wants, knowing fully well that she faces arrest.
