Storyline

Kanpur-based, pregnant Geeta Bhargav lives a wealthy lifestyle with her husband, Balwant, and three children: Shrikant, Arun and Usha. Her alcoholic and womanizing husband is arrested for killing a bodyguard of a Courtesan and is sentenced to 20 years in prison. She is then accused of luring men into her house and is asked to move on. Homeless, on the verge of starvation, she is unable to feed her family, and Usha passes away. She decides to become a widow, gets shelter, a job, and has Shrikant enrolled in a hostel. Then her luck changes when she is adopted by wealthy J.S. Archarya, and gives birth to Kirti. She explains her situation to Archarya, who wills her his entire estate and subsequently passes away. Years later, Geeta will face more challenges when she will be accused by Archarya's associates of having an affair with an unknown male, and also be forced to deal with Arun, who is involved with the daughter of a prostitute.

A Nice Social Drama with Brilliant Performances......
11 April 2016 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

"Mera Ghar Mere Bachche" chronicles the story of a lady who fights against the atrocities of a cruel husband and fends for her children. That's what the title stands for and presents a story that is able to relate its audiences with the central characters. Well, the film appears to be impressive in instances rather than a whole. Certain there are sequences which appear a bit sub standard; but at certain sequences, the film just shines and seem to fulfill the objective of the story. The strong bonding the audiences make with the protagonist of the film sets the film supreme from the regular social dramas churned in the 80s. At least there are three performances, for which you feel like clapping. Smita Patil, as usual, has given a performance that's well ahead of her age. Raj Babbar as a cruel husband looks astonishing; but it's Sushma Seth who steals the show and just enlivens the screen. Overall, the film serves a familiar territory of social drama but the performances and the plot sets its aside from the regular movies.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
