     15Damini (Sheshadri), the virtuous daughter of 
     16an impoverished father (Srivastava) who is 
     17worried about getting his two daughters 
     18married, achieves the impossible when the 
     19millionaire Shekhar Gupta (Kapoor) falls for 
     20her. Shekhar’s family, including his mother 
     21(Hattangadi) and his mother’s brother (Anand), 
     22are initially against Damini but finally accept 
     23her, until an incident disrupts the entire family. 
     24On the day of Holi, Damini witnesses her 
     25husband’s younger brother and his three 
     26friends rape a maidservant. The entire family, 
     27including her husband Shekhar, conspire to 
     28hush up the scandal. When Damini refuses to 
     29keep silent, the family, aided by a scheming 
     30lawyer (Puri) and a corrupt police force, try to 
     31make her go insane. She is eventually helped 
     32by a down-and-out lawyer Govind (Deol) who 
     33defends her in court. For a remarkable essay on 
     34this extraordinary woman-centered melodrama 
     35and mild commercial success, see Madhava 
     36Prasad, ‘Signs of Ideological Re-Form in Two 
     37Recent Films’ (1996).
