Unfortunately this film is not available anymore. Back in the early '50s this film became quite famous for its very touching social story but neither the film not the songs were preserved.
Salil was very much inspired by a folk song from Coochbehar (North Bengal) when he composed "Ichhaamoti nodi re amaar". It took me years to find out this information and its melody since no record was ever released for this song. An exquisite hindi adaptation of this song was later composed by Salil in "Jawaahar(1960)" - "Jaane kahaan khoyaa meraa laal" - sung beautifully by Lata.
