Amrohis debut is now considered a Hindi classic. It is a complicated ghost story psychodrama choreographed by Lachhu Maharaj and featuring hero Shankar (A. Kumar), who moves into an abandoned mansion that has a tragic history. He notices his resemblance to a portrait of the mansions former owner and sees the ghost of the mans mistress Kamini (Madhubala) who tells him he must either die if they are to be united or that he must marry her reincarnation, the gardeners daughter, Asha His friend Shrinath (Kumar) tries to break the obsession by arranging Shankars marriage to Ranjana (Vijayalakshmi). However, Shankars obsession continues to the distress of his new bride who is excepted among other things, to live in a snake-and bat-infested hut. Ranjana commits suicide, accusing Shankar of the deed, but the truth comes out in the courtroom drama when the gardeners daughter admits to having masqueraded as the ghost. Shankar is neverthless condemned to death for Ranjanas murder but in a strange reversal of fortunes, transfers his obsession to Asha: instead of being fascinated by a dead woman, he is now the near-ghost fascinated by the living Asha. The deep focus photography is perhaps German Cameraman Wirschings best work in his career at Bombay Talkies. It is complemented by a remarkably advanced soundtrack. The film includes the song hit, Ayega aanewala (sung by Lata Mangeshkar and regarded as a turning-point in her career use as a leitomotif for the ghost.
