Storyline

Seeta is ill treated by her cruel aunt Kaushalya. Fed up with her atrocities, one day Seeta leaves the house and runs into Raka. Meanwhile, her look-alike, Geeta, is apprehended by the police and brought to Kaushalya. Geeta, unlike Seeta, is unafraid and soon assumes control of the house. But as fate could have it, Geeta's cover is blown and she is arrested for impersonation. Seeta, in the meantime, is unable to meet life's harsh demands, including dancing in the street, as was Geeta and Raka's profession. As Geeta is got rid off, Kaushalya locates Seeta and brings her back to her life of mute slavery, abuse, and confinement. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com
