An expert woodworker craftsman (Ashok Kumar) has been out of work for over a year, has sold all his assets, and is living in poverty with his wife (Nirupa Roy) and son. He finally gets a good job and his wife gives the last of her wealth - her wedding jewelry - so he can buy the tools he needs for his new job. Things are finally looking up but the same day he receives his first paycheck his tools are stolen. What follows is a series of misadventures as he tries to find or replace his tools. This is probably the role of a lifetime for Lalita Pawar as his witch of a neighbor, and Om Prakash has a very sympathetic role as the witch's husband. Minoo Mumtaz has a good mujra and Helen one of her best early performances. An unknown gem. Highly recommended.
