Storyline

Bipinchandra breaks family tradition by marrying a city girl, Hemangini, much to the chagrin of his sister-in-law, Kadambini, and her husband, Navinchandra. Things are delicate even after both women give birth to two children each. Then Hemangini testifies against Navinchandra in Court, leading to the division of the property. Things got worse by the arrival of Kadambini's orphaned school-going step-brother, Kishan, who is beaten and abused by not only by Kadambini and Navinchandra, but also by their overweight son. When Hemangini objects to Kishan's ill-treatment, Bipin takes the side of the rest of the family, and may probably force her to abandon Kishan to his fate or divorce her.

Motivating family and social drama
21 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

A remarkable family & social drama based on Sharatchandra Chatterjee work 'Mej Didi'. The movie entirely revolves around Kishan, ably played by Sachin, and Hema enacted by Meena Kumari. Sachin has, without any doubt, been the best and the most successful child artist in the history of Hindi cinema. The kid steals the show despite presence of seasoned actors. Meena Kumari and Lalita Pawar are first rate. Dharmendra and Bipin Gupta supports well. The only disappointing factor is Hemant Kumar's music. The movie did not do well commercially but got Best Screenplay and Best Art Direction awards at 1969 Filmfare and was also the official entry to the 41st Oscars, from India. It's for you if you like drama.
