Sacrifice, devotion and love are the other names of “BABU’, a man who devotes his entire life and happiness for the sake of one rich family who once gave him food and clothes with love- and he did not know how to repay this. Being an ordinary rickshaw puller in the streets of Calcutta he had never experienced the joy of love and respect- even his beloved is raped and murdered by one of the villain. He is left alone in the world with no object or ambition left in him- he is just pulling the time as his rickshaw rolls.

Just then to add to his sorrows he finds that the rich family where he was once given shelter have also come on road and he meets the cute looking girl on the streets trying to steal food from one of the stalls. The girl breaks down and narrates the complete story of how her father died and now she and her mother are staying in one of the huts- they cannot even afford a meal.

Babu was moved at the plight of the little girl and he goes all out to help them he works round the clock. To see pinky study and come out in flying colours from the college. But babu’s health was deteriorating day by day he was coughing blood and the age catching on him. He wants to see pinky in a brides dress and ultimately settle down in life.

How babu achieved success in his mission- whether the rich family got their happiness again- are the few silver coated points only to be seen on screen in film “BABU” produced by CINDY FILMS.
