Storyline

Naive, childish and precocious, Gauri lives a wealthy lifestyle in a small town, Rajanpur, along with her sister, Ratna; her mom; and dad, Girdhari Singh. While at the fair, she gets into an argument with Shankar. Shortly thereafter, Gauri is told that her marriage has been arranged. At first Gauri is thrilled, then changes her mind when she finds out that her groom is Shankar, but reconciles herself to this marriage. After she re-locates to Shankar's residence, she spends more time with Shankar's young brother, while her husband starts to realize that Gauri has not matured yet and is unable to get intimate with her. Gauri soon becomes bored, and re-locates to her parents' house, where she resides for several months. It is here that Gauri matures and realizes the importance of marriage and intimacy. She then returns to Shankar's house, where she is welcomed back - though not quite as warmly enough. Gauri starts to realize that her childishness has resulted in getting the cold shoulder...

for madhuri fans only?
2 February 1999 | by (durham, england) – See all my reviews

I do not rate this film extremely highly, and would recommend it only really as a curiosity for Madhuri fans who wish to see her first film. She acquits herself well as the naive village girl who does not realise what marriage actually entails. However, the storyline is spread thinly and degenerates in to some kind of advice book on how to be an ideal, dutiful wife and daughter in law. All the problems in the marriage seem to be presented as the fault of the woman, which I find worrying and leads me to appreciate this film only really for the performances.
