Storyline

He is also the sole heir to the property of the Zamindar, as his elder stepbrother, Govind is drug-induced to the point of senility. When Gauri opposes Niranjan's ruthlessness against fellow-villagers, the Zaminder, angered by her intrusion, complains to her dad, Vedji.

But Sunanda will not hear of her son marrying a poor villager's daughter, and she convinces him that Gauri should get married to Govind. Although her father is opposed to his daughter marrying a senile man, Gauri accepts Govind, and marries him. She finds out that she and Govind have no status in the household, which is run on the whims and fancies of Sunanda, her maid, Chintamani, and Niranjan.

Trivia

Russian DJ RZHB sampled Thoda Resham Lagta Hain. He titled the song "Disturbing Delhi Night". A music video was also posted on youtube. The only problem is people are unable to search the video due to the DJ writing his name and all songs in Russian writing .To find the songs, one must go to the Google Translate page and type in the English writing of the songs name, then click "Translate". Only then when the Russian writing shows up can the person cut and paste the Russian writing and enter it under the search engine on youtube.com. Then you will be able to find all of RZHB's work.

A well acted and well directed story of a zamindar family
12 April 2013 | by dbhattacSee all my reviews

This is a good movie. Very good acting by veterans like Ashok Kumar, Hema Malini, Jeeendra, Shashikala and Ajit. This is the story of a zaminder family led by Ashok Kumar who has two sons played by Vijayendra Ghatge ( Niranjan ) and Jeetendra ( Govind ) Govind is physically handicapped and is constantly abused by the younger brother Niranjan. Jyoti ( Hema Malini ) is the daughter of the village Vaidya ( doctor ) played by Om Shivpuri. Jyoti gets married to Govind at the behest of the zamindar and she takes a strong stand against Niranjan's abuses and also cures Govind from his senility. Hema Malini gave a superb performance as the village girl eventually becoming the wife of the zamindar's son. The movie is very well scripted by Sachin Bhowmick and cinematography and directions are very good. Bappi Lahiri provided some good songs specially the one titled "Angrai leke prem Jawani " and the murja "Thoda rasham lagta hai". There have quite a few movies by the same players during the late 70's and early 80's and this is one is one of the better ones. I gave it a eight out of ten.
