Storyline

Renowned Indian astrologer Jyotibhaskar Pandit Satyanarayan Chaturvedi, wishes a doctor, who is about to perform surgery on a woman, good luck, but also tells him that his patient is going to die. The doctor scoffs at this, and proceeds to the operation theatre. The patient dies, and the doctor is humbled before the astrologer. The astrologer lives with his wife, Devki, and an only son, Nandu. Nandu is of marriageable age, and he would like to see him get married to a woman named Indu Agnihotri. But Nandu loves another woman by the name of Sushma Chatopadhya and is determined to marry her. And then his father tells him that he is fated to have two wives in this lifetime - the first will die within eleven months of the marriage - and that's when he will re-marry. Modern-day educated Nandu must now decide to believe his father and let go of Sushma, or defy his astrological beliefs and marry her. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

rare Hindi cinematic experience
14 July 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

hi, Despite being a regular IMDb visitor this is actually my first post.I have watched so many really good movies over the last 2 years that commenting on this one is a little intriguing.but more than that i was so taken aback that i had to do something to vent my amusement and elation so i rushed to the site and now i m writing a review.More than a review it is just an experience oozing out to the web page. Although i have grown up watching all kind of Hindi cinema i am not such a big fan of it(now that i have watched cinema from all round the world)as far as story driven movies are concerned.More than stories generally our movies are all about stars and now a days a few typecast characters.Instances of movies purely driven by a strong story are not umpteen to say the least. Well after watching ankahee today i can safely add it to the list of great story backed cinema. such a lovely script,with a quite an out of the league music,which is so unconventional but complements the film superbly are what make this movie a radical experience.Watch it to believe it and expect no fireworks because there are not any.The movie just flows without much ado but but leaves you spellbound. And i had never heard of the name is such a pity and there are only 10 votes for the film vindicates the fact that this jewel is still lying somewhere undiscovered by movie-buffs.So go-out today and bag a copy.
