After the passing of Ramswaroop Lal, his two sons, Jeevandas and Shankar take over the control of their farmland. 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. When Shyam returns, he falls in love with Neelima, and then begin a series of misunderstandings and disagreements which result in the house being divided in two - with Jeevandas, Bhagvanti, Shyam, Navrangi, and Neelima on one side, and Govind, his wife, Radha, Shankar, and Parvati on the other. Navrangi borrows money from Bhagvanti and invests it in a Carnival, however, most of his earnings are stolen by two dancers, Jati and Sati. He then borrows more money, this time from Shyam, and purchases an elephant. ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

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.
