    This is a story of three unmarried sisters and their old mother. The eldest one is Nimki (Sharmila Tagore) and she is a spinster in this movie. The middle sister is Mitthu (Shabana Azmi) and she cannot speak. The name of the youngest one is Chinki and the role has been played by Kiran Virale. Mother's role (Jugni) has been played by (Waheeda Rehman). Dhaniram (played by T. P. Jain) is their father and he does not live with them. He always wants to take Chinki with him to make her a drama dancer, which Jugni never wanted. All four live in a very old house outside the village. Gerulal (Sanjeev Kumar) is a truck driver and he comes to live in their house on rent. As time progressed, he sees the difficulties and problems they were facing being women. He found that even among the crisis of money and facilities, all the sisters were capable of maintaining moral values and diginified behavior towards the outer world. He began to like Nimki. But, somehow, Mitthu also began to like Gerulal. Mitthu's feeling cannot exactly be called as love with Gerulal as it was more a sympathitical attitude of Gerulal toward her, which she was missing for very long. Since Gerulal was a driver so he had to go one day. Before going , he expressed his feelings in front of Nimki and proposed her to marry him. But she turned down his proposal citing the responsibility of her sisters and her mother. When he left, their lives also changed. It all started with the suicide of Mitthu as she lost her mental balance in the absence of Gerulal. Jugni also died due to her continuous illness. Taking the benefit of the situation, Dhaniram succeeded in convincing Chinki to take her with him despite of the huge resistance from Nimki. Nimki was left alone in that house. When Gerulal came to know about that, he came and married Nimki and took her away from there.
