Jeevandas marries Bhagvanti and has no children, while Shankar marries Parvati and has two sons, Govind and Shyam. Due to an accident with an electric pole, Govind's right side gets paralyzed. Years later, Shyam has gone for further studies to the big city, while the only relatives of Bhagvanti, Navrangi Lal and his sister, Neelima, have moved in with the Lal family.

good movie
3 June 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good flick showing the Joint family system in villages and there advantages and disadvantages.Sunil Dutt gives a bravo performance in the role of a physically disabled person who still wanna live the life in happiness but the society does not really want him to.This movie also won him a filmfare award and to be honest it was Om Prakash's or Sunil Dutt's performance which have carried the film on their shoulders.Nutan gives a good performance as his co-star and Om Prakash as I said also gives an excellent performance in the role of a man who is influenced a lot by his wife.The songs of this movie are also quite good therefore in my opinion this movie is a good one and should be seen.
