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)

Simple clean movie
28 March 2004 | by (St Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

This is movie from a different era - reminds you of the times when the values were different. Joint family and obeying elders were the norm and individuality would take a back seat. Rekha challenges the joint family rules and brings in a fresh breath of life to the stifled family members. Values and lifestyles are changing, albeit slowly, and this movie reminds you of the days when you had fun with such simple things

Rekha and all the cast members do an excellent job in this movie. The characterization is such that you get to know every member of the family. This is one of the best of the simple clean movies of 80's
