Ragini is a blind, but talented young woman, well versed in all household chores, and a golden voice. She lives with her mother, Radha, who is anxious to get her married, to a point that she gets sick and is bed-ridden often; and her dad, Govind, a singer by profession. When a prospective groom's mother rejects Ragini because of her disability, Radha has a stroke and passes away, leaving a devastated Govind and Ragini to try and cope with life. Then when Govind travels to another town to negotiate with a suitable groom for his daughter, he tragically meets with an accident, and dies, leaving Ragini alone with her maid-servant and her maternal aunt. Then Rajan Swamy enters her life, and everything changes for her. They fall in love, and soon get married. They spend several days in absolute bliss, intimacy, and harmony, only taking breaks to eat some food. Then Rajan has to go away on business for about a week - out of town. Weeks pass by and Rajan does not return. Then Ragini finds out... Written by rAjOo (

Excellent one time watch
25 November 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I am surprised to see no reviews for this movie and poor rating awarded by movie buffs.

To me movie was excellent in between usual bollywood masala trash....

Characterization and Acting from All including standout by Ashwini Bhave was superb. Pacing was optimum, Movie was always walking on thin line with danger of falling into "Jai santoshi maa" kind of melodrama for woman adversities, but to our rescue it didn't happen, It was obviously got predictable as it progressed but much more importance was on Bhairavi's emotional ride of Love, Self-Belief, and her performance in climax does move you and for moment you reflect on our Indian society which simply looks at woman in such situation as burden rather that creating support system for them...

In all good mature movie one time watch for sure ...will give 8 / 10
