Storyline

Malti Shankar lives in a fairly large house in a small town in India with her mom and dad, while her paternal uncle, Gauri Shankar, who has literally brought Malti up, lives in the house next door. Malti's marriage is being arranged with a young man named Ram G. Sharma, who lives in Bombay with his dad, Girdharilal; mom; elder brother, Shiri and his wife, Shobha; and a cricket-crazy school-going brother, Hari. The Pandit, arranging the marriage, describes the Sharma family, who originate from the nearby Bayana town, as a good family, living near the seashore, in a big building called "Bharat Mahal". The wedding party arrives, the bride and groom approve of each other, get married, and Malti re-locates to Ram's house. She is shocked and surprised to find that it is nowhere near the seashore, is a shanty room, divided two ways, and a kitchen - that is now her bedroom. Malti always had lots of space to live and grow up in, will this obscure, noisy, overcrowded, with virtually no privacy ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Charming portrayal of life in Mumbai
25 April 2019 | by sawseemaSee all my reviews

How can constraint living space shared with a joint family impact the love life of a newlywed couple? Glad that someone thought of this problem back in the 70s. No mean family members, no extramarital affairs and no angry young men - a simple story line highlighting struggles of middle class Mumbai. Watch it for natural acting performance, beautiful capture of 70s Mumbai city life and simple pleasures. Pace may seem slower to some, but I loved it.
