Storyline

Naive, childish and precocious, Gauri lives a wealthy lifestyle in a small town, Rajanpur, along with her sister, Ratna; her mom; and dad, Girdhari Singh. While at the fair, she gets into an argument with Shankar. Shortly thereafter, Gauri is told that her marriage has been arranged. At first Gauri is thrilled, then changes her mind when she finds out that her groom is Shankar, but reconciles herself to this marriage. After she re-locates to Shankar's residence, she spends more time with Shankar's young brother, while her husband starts to realize that Gauri has not matured yet and is unable to get intimate with her. Gauri soon becomes bored, and re-locates to her parents' house, where she resides for several months. It is here that Gauri matures and realizes the importance of marriage and intimacy. She then returns to Shankar's house, where she is welcomed back - though not quite as warmly enough. Gauri starts to realize that her childishness has resulted in getting the cold shoulder...

Good clean family film
10 April 2000 | by malamal1See all my reviews

Madhuri's introductory film, in which at the tender age of 19 she shines and shows promise even then of her magnitude.

A good clean family film from the Rajshri camp, who have made a name for themselves by making films that can be viewed with enjoyment by the whole family.

Although this film was not directed by Sooraj Barjatya, who regularly delivers Superhit films for Rajshri(e.g Maine Pyaar Kiya,Hum Apke Hain Koun?,Hum Saath Saath Hain) it is along the same lines promoting moral/family values.

Madhuri excels in her role as a young naive bride who is full of life alongside Bengali actor Tapas Paul who plays her bemused husband, he is also very good in his role as are the supporting cast particularly the lady who plays the Grandmother.

All in all well worth watching, very funny at times, 'a film your mother will love'.
