Dinkar D. Patil directs this melodramatic yarn set in a Maharashtrian frontier, recalling the American Western. The film opens with the levelheaded Shripati sending his younger brother Jaising to his relative's house to study English. While staying in his uncle's rural abode, Jaising has a couple roles in the hay with his beautiful cousin -- a coupling deftly orchestrated by the conniving uncle. When his daughter becomes pregnant, Shripati arranges for the two young lovers to marry. Then the uncle's Machiavellian shenanigans shifts into high gear: he creates a rift between the two brothers, eventually resulting in Shripati and his wife getting kicked off their land.
