Shashi, Akbar and a group of young people pledge never to give nor receive dowry. Acting against his mother's wishes, Shashi marries Sugandha Srivastav, and does not accept any dowry. He arranges his sister's, Rama's marriage with Ravi Verma, the son of Goverdhan and Shakuntala. Goverdhan and Shakuntala did not get any dowry, and are quite upset, though Ravi is happy. Both want Ravi to re-marry, so that they can get dowry. They send Ravi away, and Goverdhan plans to accidentally kill Rama, but things go wrong, and instead Shakuntala gets badly burned, and has to be hospitalized. Taking this opportunity, Goverdhan blames Rama for attempting to kill Shakuntala, and has her arrested. Now Shashi will have to put all his resources together to free his sister, as the evidence and motive are not in her favor.
Did You Know?
Aamir Khan was angry with the director of the film. One day before the shooting began,Arun Bhatt told him about a scene that made him very uncomfortable. During the script narration the scene was not there. It was added at the last minute. Before the song "Mere Jaan Jao Naa" Aamir Khan was to talk to Javed Jaffery and teach him how to make love to his wife (which is Aamir's sister in the film !). They recorded 18 lines for Aamir to sing before the song started. When Aamir heard this he told Arun Bhatt he felt uncomfortable doing it. He was upset because he was never told about this scene. He stated that the conservative Indian audience would not accept a brother teaching his brother in law how to make love to his sister. Aamir put his foot down and the scene was eventually dropped from the film. See more
