Storyline

A father and mother are pressuring their daughter into an arranged marriage. Upon seeing the daughter's distress, the priest begins to tell the family the following story. There was once two widowed sisters, Shanti and Heera, who wished to arrange marriages for their respective children. Shanti's daughter Maya was to marry a wealthy man named Chandrakant, and Heera's son Jagat was to wed Chandrakant's sister Usha. When Maya was informed that her and Jagat's marriages were arranged, she was pleased because she mistakenly believed that she was to wed her cousin Jagat, whom she loved. Will Shanti and Heera succeed in their machinations to finalize Maya's wedding before Jagat returns home from Bombay? Written by L. Hamre
