Direction (Q. 1 - 10): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering the questions.
A classic film in its own right for Rajinder Singh Bedi's profound dialogue, Hrishikesh Mukherjee's deft direction and Dharmendra's sterling performance before he got caught in the web of the 'he man' image. The weak points—mediocre lyrics and lacklustre music.
The film opens with Sanjeev Kumar's voiceover describing the plight of the mythical Satyakam Jabala. who takes on his mother's name because of his questionable fatherhood. While the drama begins in 1946, the narrative actually takes place in post-Independence India.
When Satyapriya's (Dharmendra) mother dies in childbirth and his father becomes a sanyasi. he is raised in an ashram by his grandfather. Satyadarshan Acharya (Ashok Kumar), a staunch nationalist and Sanskrit scholar.
While studying Engineering he befriends class-fellow Narendra Sharma (Sanjeev Kumar) but they part ways at the end of their studies. Satyapriya finds ajob in United Paper Mills in a princely state soon after Independence, but is disillusioned when repeatedly asked to compromise his ideals.
While struggling between his ideals and conscience he meets Ranjana (Sharmila Tagore), daughter of a prostitute, who is pregnant after a criminal assault. Satyapriya marries the hapless girl, and soon a son, Kabul (Baby Sarika) is bom.
Satyapriya's uncompromising stance and his grandfather's refusal to accept his family compels him to move from one town to another, from one job to another because of his unwillingness to compromise his honesty.
Destiny lands him a job where he has to work under Narendra's supervision. Unlike Satyapriya. Narendra has leamt the hard way that to succeed and survive one has to make adjustments. The guilt of failure, more than compromise, becomes Satyapriya's driving force of life until he succumbs to cancer.
