Story

Nirudaka (Joe Abeywickrema) is an ugly man who is only loved by his mother (Denawaka Hamine) and taunted by others. He falls in love with blind Sundari (Sriyani Amarasena) and they get married.

The mother then feels obliged to cure Sundari's blindness much to Nirudaka's chagrin and takes her to a hermit (Ravindra Randeniya) with healing powers. In the climatic scene the hermit cures Sundari's blindness on a large rock. She laughs at Nirudaka and tries to leave, but is captured by the hermit. Nirudaka begs the hermit to let her go and takes off to not offend her.

The hermit realizes his folly and lets Sundari go. She again finds Nirudaka and they reconcile.
