In order to defame the reputation of a school-master Dharam Murti; the landlord Sher Singh Bandookwala and Narayandas Gopaldas accuses him of sexually molesting a woman. The decision gets accepted by the local village Panchayat and Dharam, his wife Savitri, a son Ravi and his daughter Padma gets out-cast from the village for a period of one month.

AAA an amazing film to watch
29 August 2006 | by paribadarSee all my reviews

A great film made in Madras, I thought they make Tamil films only but no that not true. Its a worth watching film and Ragu is a great director. I heard the song of the movie but not seen the movie but when I saw the first time its so brilliant, with great performance and music, dance numbers. It is just great to watch Sridevi dance along with Jeetu. The rest cast is amazing in their roles and cinematography captures beautiful locations amazingly and I loved this film since I watched on DVD. Its 8 out of 10. And one of Jeetu's best work ever. Bappi Lahiri have given a great music for the film. The singers have done great job also.
