A brilliant portrayal of the eternal conflict between spiritualism and the material world, through Saint Tukaram's life story. His complete surrender to devotion of Lord Hari leads to financial distress in the family, which his wife Avalai is unable to cope with. Can spiritualism overcome material needs? Rich in lyrics, the play holds a universal appeal for all times.
