Debut feature by sociologist and NGO activists Bhave and Sukhtankar, known earlier for their short film Chakori (1992). Two sisters from a poor rural family sustain their relationship in the face of a variety of problems. Their parents (Suryakant, Baokar) are wage labourers who also attempt to till their piece of infertile land. Gauri (Dafardar), whose marriage is abandoned when the groom dies, ends up a prostitute in order to pay for her sister Krishna’s (Kulkarni) future and her family’s maintenance.
