One morning when there is not a grain of rice in Alibaba’s house, he goes to Qasim but is turned out. Alibaba’s son Mansoor (Robin Majumdar) is seen that night at Qasim’s palace, dagger in hand ready to kill his uncle and end his tyranny. Qasim’s slave girl Salma (Kanan) stops him from committing the crime and tells him that individual killings would not remove the disparity between the rich and poor. Mansoor is moved by her words and goes back but he cannot forget the exquisite beauty that Salma is… Fortune plays a curious trick on the fate of the brothers and Alibaba comes to occupy Qasim’s palace and live happily with family. His son Mansoor is not happy and dreams of a society free from want and hunger. He believes in equality and wants to release the slaves of his father.
