Storyline

Nirmala Gupta runs her household and family in a very strick and authoritarian manner. While most of her family resent this, they do obey her and carry out her instructions, so as to be on her good side. Things start to change after her second son gets married to Anju. Manju, Anju's sister, comes over to stay for a few days with the Gupta family, and is accepted by everyone except Nirmala. Nirmala's third son intends to marry Manju. But Manju does not like the manner in which his mom bosses everyone along, and feels some changes are needed in the Gupta household. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One of my favorites
28 May 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film is one of my favorites. It's funny, touching, romantic, and pulls you in. It's a light, but well written story about a clash between a young woman who is a free spirit and her sister's mother in law who has lots of strict rules. Well written and believable characters and good conflict. Sometimes funny, sometimes serious. The musical numbers are imaginative, though the songs are not the best. The characters drive the story and keep you interested. You care what happens to them. I wish they had made a sequel because I want to see more of these characters and find out what happens next.
