Storyline

Asha lives a poor lifestyle along with her widowed dad, is in love with aspiring doctor Raj Kumar, and hopes to marry him someday. When Raj announces that he is traveling abroad to study, she decides to wait for him, but her father, on his deathbed, makes her promise to marry Simla-based Gopal Chopra, who is the son of his friend, Shyamlal, to which Asha agrees. The marriage takes place and soon they become parents of three daughters, Basanti - a tomboy, who excels in self-defense; Barkha an aspiring dancer, and Bulbul who wants to be a professional piano player and is on medication as she has a hole in her heart. Gopal gets a promotion and re-locates to Bombay but continues to remain in touch with his family. Then the past is re-visited when Raj, now a doctor, comes to live in their neighborhood. He meets with Asha, and decides to teach Bulbul piano lessons, while his brother, Advocate Anand, romances Basanti. Their idyllic lives are shattered when Raj is arrested for killing a man ...

A very nonsensical kind of movie
5 November 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Saawan Kumar Tak's Saajan Bina Suhagan is a typical sort of melodrama. The plot is hardly convincing and the proceedings rarely ring true. This is a stale tale of a mother's 'sacrifice'. Nutan plays Asha Chopra, a middle-aged mother of three. Three daughters they are, the eldest is a typical action star, the second is a good girl, and the third is a cute kid who has some sort of heart disease. Asha's husband is not in town, and when he unexpectedly dies, she keeps it in secret as such sudden news may kill her youngest daughter, who loves her dad the most. Then we also get the usual drunkard who blackmails Asha and threatens to reveal her secret. Yeh, this movie is a fairytale of sorts, which has little to do with reality, and has little to offer to its audience. Some of its sequences are hilarious, unintentionally of course, as we see the elder daughter fighting with guys in true Hindi film style. Nutan is an accomplished actor and rarely did she do wrong with her acting, but how much can even a great thespian like her ultimately do with such a silly character? She is good within the context of the film, but is overall let down by the script, which never allows her to utilise her true talent, and sadly so. The movie belongs to her though, and the supporting actors, too, struggle with thin characters which do not compliment them in any way. Some of the songs are nice but nothing great. Saajan Bina Suhagan is a most ordinary and boring melodrama which has few, if any, redeeming qualities, though lovers of typical Hindi weepies may enjoy it.
