Summary:
Majid, a traveling Mullah (religious leader), comes across a rural village in East Bengal. When he convinces the villagers that an old tomb within their village houses the remains of a holy man, they turn it into a shrine and he becomes their religious leader, urging them to live as devout Muslims and berating them when they have strayed. However, Majid himself proves to have questionable morals. This film is based on Syed Waliullah's novel of the same title.
