The words "Sadaa Suhagan" can be translated as a wife's constant state of happiness whilst her husband is alive. It's a concept not universally experienced.

The film opens with Rekha waking up next to her still sleeping husband (Jeetendra). Perfectly made-up and without a hair out of place she ritually blesses him before rising. Having washed, she lays out his clothes, polishes his shoes, readies his shaving kit, puts toothpaste on his toothbrush, gets his breakfast, organises the servants, attends to the religious devotions, rouses the children, gets them dressed, and sorts out their breakfast. And all to the accompaniment of a song that includes the lyrics "…my home is like heaven … my husband is my lord……". It makes the Stepford Wives look like a bunch of anarchists.

The story rolls along nicely upon conventional lines and is what Halliwell was wont to call a civilised entertainment for those who have dined well though one suspects that this was not one of Rekha's favourite roles.
