The glistering "edge" of defeat in love and its frustration, changes a man into all-consumming passionate animal; disfigure the soul and cuts the flesh sharp and deep. He proceeds to achieve the satisfaction of his lust with the help of fair and unfair means, at his command - official position, social status - anything and everything ... those were the very sharp and ugly and mean weapons which Chief engineer Saigal used to crush the Contractor Charu Dutt in order to have his lovely daughter Mohini........!!!

The melodious strains of a soul stirring "Voice" echoed through the twinkling thoughts of Mohini amidst the pristine purity of Mahabaleshwar. Unknown to her the VOICE became the personification of her latent desires-delicate... till one day Love took a deep breath and turned into Reality.

"Voice" transformed itself into persons-Mohand and Mohini. Single invisible silken thread of Love began to unwind itself and bound them together closer and closer.

Nature whispered; rejoiced and then quivered in Ecstasy and love flew on the wigs of Youth and Poesy...Careless, free, pure and delicate....!!! With shattering impact the hate of Saigal crashed into the delicate divine domain of Love..... Everything disappeared into the dark, swirling roaring avalanche of lust and power.

Could these forces of doom triumph over the Purity of Love or it merely became the harbinger of a new rosy dawn of happiness.....!!!

The SILVE SCREEN will disclose you......
