Originally released in 1993.
Like a lost soul, Tunu lives and spends her time at the Bombay Central Railway Station, searching desperately for the one face which can change her life: the face of her father Dinesh Roy, a small-time politician. He has abandoned her and her mother, Geeta, who has now become a bootlegger and prostitute in order to survive. One day, Tunu does locate Dinesh and goes to Delhi to meet him who is now a leader in a big political party, but she is drugged and dumped into a train without a ticket. Returning home to Mumbai she finds that her mother has been murdered. Then, one day, she sees her father's photograph in the newspaper. He is to address a political meeting in Mumbai. Tunu attends the meeting and tries to contact her father but is thrown out. While Dinesh Roy talks of integrity, his illegitimate daughter is on the way to the police lock-up for disturbing the peace & eventually will face death!
