She hopes to earn enough money to see him through his studies as well as feed everyone, so that he can accomplish himself and ensure the rest of her sisters get married. She sacrifices her personal life and romance with Anand, and gets married to a womanizing elderly widower, Manoharlal, who has six children, on the condition that he agrees to look after her family as well as pay for Suresh's education. Manoharlal hastily agrees, they get married, and she, along-with Suresh, re-locate to live with him, his mother, and attractive sister, Asha.

A well acted film about a family story with superb performance by Padmini
20 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you would like to see a Hindi movie where Pran is not a villain and Padmini does not have a dance sequence, go an enjoy this two and a half hour long Gemini family drama with some excellent piece of acting by Padmini, Pran and young and up coming Rajesh Khanna. This is a story of Parvati ( Padmini ) who is the sole bread winner of six siblings including a grown up Suresh ( Rajesh Khanna ) who she is determined to support his higher education with her humble income working as a household maid for a very compassionate family. The movie is all about Parvati played magnificently by Padmini who has demonstrated her acting skills as a loving elder sister of her siblings, a wife devoted to her husband Manharilal ( Pran ) inspite of his animal like instincts and also providing a motherly love of her husband's children. Also Rajesh Khanna, Nazima ( as Asha) and Lalita Pawar provided good acting in their support roles. The song sequence in the river was very well depicted with some excellent photography. The music is commendable and has some melodious numbers. Overall it is an enjoyable movie about a woman's struggle to survive in this world with special focus on how far a family can go to support higher education to make a meaningful life for one of their members.
