     10When Andal’s (Manorama) only son Ravi (Ravi) 
     11grows up, she dominates every aspect of his 
     12life fearing that he might fall for a modern 
     13woman who, in turn, might threaten Andal’s 
     14control over her domestic space. She makes 
     15her son marry Uma Maheshwari (Urvashi), a 
     16docile maid-servant. When Uma demonstrates 
     17some tendencies towards independence, Andal 
     18forces her daughter-in-law to commit suicide. 
     19Andal is arrested, but acquitted in court even 
     20though her own son believes her guilty. 
     21Although initially received with some protest, 
     22the film went on to become a major hit mainly 
     23with urban middle class audiences responding 
     24e.g. to Uma’s dialogues to her mother-in-law 
     25like ‘Since you feed and dress and bathe your 
     26son, why do you give me the mangalsutra, you 
     27could have worn it yourself’ (i.e. you could 
     28have married your son).
