Plot

Niranjan Pratap Singh is the stepson of a Zamindar and the real son of Ranimaa Sunanda. He is also the sole heir to the property of the Zamindar, as his elder stepbrother, Govind is drug-induced to the point of senility. When Gauri opposes Niranjan's ruthlessness against fellow-villagers, the Zamindar, angered by her intrusion, complains to her father, Vedji. The Zamindar's anger is subdued when he actually speaks to Gauri and ends up admiring her and asking her hand in marriage for his son, Niranjan. But Sunanda will not hear of her son marrying a poor villager's daughter, and she convinces him that Gauri should marry Govind. Although her father is opposed to his daughter marrying a senile man, Gauri accepts Govind and marries him. She finds out that she and Govind have no status in the household, which is run on the whims and fancies of Sunanda, her maid, Chintamani, and Niranjan. Niranjan is misguided by a dancer, Mallika, and Amirchand, who are after his wealth. Gauri must now decide whether to have her own life, or be chained to a senile half-child half-man.

Soundtrack

The music was composed by Bappi Lahiri. [1] The song "Chidiya Chon Chon" is based on "Marianne" by Roaring Lion. [4] The song "Thoda Resham Lagta Hai" had fallen into obscurity for over two decades, [5] but gained national attention in 2002 when it was sampled by American producer Dr. Dre for the Truth Hurts song "Addictive" which led to a legal dispute that was ultimately resolved. [6] The song was also remixed by Indian music director Harry Anand as "Kaliyon Ka Chaman" for the Universal Music India album UMI-10 (Vol 3). [7]
