Giribala, a beautiful, young wife of a wealthy, spoilt Zamindar son, Gopinath, secretly went to watch a play in the nearby theatre. Giribala and Gopinath had a loving, romantic relationship when they got married. But soon Gopinath fell out of love and started seeing a glamorous theatre actress, Latika. The charm of Giribala’s youth and beauty could not keep Gopinath in the house. So along with a faithful maid Sudha, Giribala went to see the reason of her husband’s aloofness. The play ‘Maan Bhanjan’ started with glimmering lights and magical songs. ‘Radha’ is angry, and ‘Krishna’ is trying to convince her by surrendering himself to her feet. The play finished but Giribala was enthralled. She imagined herself as Radha, and Gopinath as Krishna.
