Businessman Rai Bahadur Ramdas lives a wealthy lifestyle in a mansion along with his wife, Shanta; two sons: Kailash and Kamal; Kailash's wife, Sita; and widowed Gauri, the wife of his late son and mother of two children, Gappu and Pappu. Kamal runs the business and ensures that everyone is happy - albeit in vain, as his mother physically and mentally abuses Gauri and Sita, while pampering her married daughter, Bhairavi, to no end, and even permitting her to leave her husband, Sarang, and live in their house. Sita gets pregnant, and Kamal, rather dramatically gets married to Usha Gupta, the daughter of wealthy Advocate Shyam Lal Gupta. Then things rapidly deteriorate after jewelry goes missing and Kailash is seen with another woman, and refuses to return home. Nothing will prepare the family for the shock and trauma when they find out the reason why Kailash has moved out. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A block buster of a gemini production with some stellar performance by veteran bollywood actors.
25 March 2013 | by dbhattacSee all my reviews

This is a blockbuster. This movie has everything from stellar acting, enchanting music with a very entertaining qawali type song with dance, family feud and some gorgeous acting by Rajendra Kumar, Raaj Kumar, Shubha Khote, Agha and Lalita Power. Lalita Power is amazing – from a banana vendor in Shri 420, a Christian house keeper in Sharada to this cantankerous mother of the house in Gharana , she demonstrated her acting skills to its pinnacle. She was just awesome in her role as the mother of the house and beating up on everyone without any reason or so ever. Asha Parekh as the younger bohu of the house did very well though she did not have a very serious role in the movie. Vijaylakhsmi as the elder bohu was very reserved and did a wonderful job portraying the ideal housewife and taking all the abuse from her mother-in-law, sister-in-law and even her husband but never loosing the faith that every Indian women have in her khandan. The dance sequences were well presented and cinematography was better than average. I gave it a nine out of ten.
