Shahida was poor but rich in beauty. She toiled day and night to save her presents from the woes of destitute life. Shahida’s father wished to marry her in a good family but the mother of the boy of her choice preferred money to anything else. He was a Taluqadar. There was in the village a wealthy and handsome young man. He threw aside the pride of power and sought the hand of the poor man’s daughter. Shahida’s father detected tears in her eyes. He could not decide. He was torn between two alternatives- either to accept the proposal of the mighty man of the village or to become a thief to brighten the future of his unfortunate daughter. Shahida’s father committed theft so that the demand of the mother of the boy, whom Shahida loved, may be satisfied. The theft was detected and Shahida’s father was brought in chains before the court. He met with the fate of a common thief.

The Taluqadar drove Shahida and her mother out of the village when all his schemes failed. The young boy who loved Shahida no less than Shahida loved him, broke under the weight of his disappointment and became mad. The Taluqadar burning with the flame of his own passion hoped that Shahida would be forced by her sheer helplessness to seek his favour but even this hope was belied. And then driven by circumstances, Shahida one day found herself imprisoned in the well-guarded castle of the Taluqadar. Such was the course of her destiny. The agonies that Shahida bore, should be seen on the screen than described in words.
