Storyline

A father (Ralph Maraj) who has settled in Trinidad has just come back from India with Rina (Sanam Suri), a bride for his son Sham (Bhalinder). The only problem is, Sham is so hopelessly shy and/or repressed by his cultural background that he cannot bring himself to engage in any intimacy, of any kind, with his new bride. Being Indian, he is well aware that his bride may desire to have a relationship with a man and so he gives her free rein to enter into any sort of liaison she wants. Rina does fall in love with an artist (Kabir Bedi) and has a baby by him, but her father-in-law is outraged at her behavior and kills the artist. Rina herself is later put on trial for the death of another man, even though she is innocent and has actually framed by her father-in-law. As the story moves along, there are musical numbers worked into the scenes (one of the friends is a performer) that are lively and entertaining in themselves.

Excellent Movie.. must see
6 December 2001 | by shiv-1See all my reviews

The performance of all the cast is pretty good. The story is gripping and very realistic. It is sad to visualize a similar plight of millions of Indian girls all over the world. The music is quite entertaining.
