     11Social melodrama about the plight of chikanembroiderers 
     12in decaying Lucknow, the setting 
     13of Ali’s Umrao Jaan (1981). The sensitive 
     14Anjuman (Azmi) does chikan work to augment 
     15her extended family’s income. She is courted 
     16by a phoney poet, Banke Nawab (Khan), who 
     17has control over the chikan workers, but she 
     18falls in love with her wealthy but weak 
     19neighbour Sajjid (Shaikh). Encouraged by her 
     20doctor friend Suchitra Sharma (Hattangadi), 
     21Anjuman demands fair treatment for the chikan 
     22workers but the pressure on her to marry the 
     23exploitative Banke grows. She finally says ‘No’ 
     24during the wedding ceremony and has to face 
     25the wrath of Banke who incites a riot among 
     26the Muslims in the town. Anjuman then 
     27becomes a feminist labour activist and earns 
     28the admiration of her beloved Sajjid.
