     19Apparently inspired by The Best Little 
     20Whorehouse in Texas (Colin Higgins, 1982), 
     21Benegal’s rare venture into comedy touches on 
     22religion and politics via the motif of 
     23prostitution. Brothel madam Rukmini (Azmi) 
     24tries to make her ‘girls’ conform to the timehonoured 
     25traditions of a kotha (a brothel 
     26where music and dance flourish). The women’s 
     27mischievousness forces the establishment to 
     28find another home. Problems arise when 
     29Sushil, the son of Major Agarwal (Jaffrey), a 
     30local notable, falls in love with the prostitute 
     31Zeenat (Patil), Agarwal’s illegitimate daughter. 
     32Instead, Sushil is supposed to marry the 
     33neurotic daughter of Mr Gupta (Kharbanda), a 
     34property developer who makes the brothel 
     35shift locations yet again in order to separate 
     36Sushil from Zeenat.
