An NCPA-NFAI Presentation
Hindi Film with English Subtitles
Lalita is an orphaned niece of an impoverished clerk named Gurucharan. She falls in love with Shekhar, son of their rich landlord neighbour. Gurucharan has to mortgage his house to Shekhar’s father in order to get one of his daughters married as he is heavily debt ridden. Shekhar’s father, often chides him about his overdue loan and a day comes when, completely pressed on all sides, Gurucharan is forced to take advantage of the altruistic offer of an interest free loan made by a wealthy young man named Girin. This gives rise to an ugly misunderstanding that Lalita has been sold to Girin. What happens thereafter forms the gripping rest of this great story of perfect love.
