great movie
24 November 2004 | by azeemaxSee all my reviews

A very simple and low budget movie... but u do not get bored at any point.... great story and some great acting.. a must see for Jaya Bachan fans.

The movie revolves around a simple village girl (Jaya) who is a tom boy and different from all the girls of the village. Darling of her father, her mother fears about her marriage prospects. One day she was poking fun at a friend's place where a potential groom from a well off family, and educated from the city had come to see the friend. She is caught red handed, but instead of getting angry, the boy falls for her and sends a marriage proposal. From then on, you should see it for your self, that how the story unfolds and Jaya leaves her adolescence to take on the role of a daughter in law and wife. The sexual tension between the couple, is a highlight of the movie.
