    Prem Granth is a Hindi movie which was released in India on 22 May 1996. Directed by Rajiv Kapoor, the movie stars Rishi Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit and deals with the subject of rape.
    Somen (Rishi Kapoor), a lawyer and son of head priest Swami Dharam Bhushan Maharaj (Anupam Kher), is a man with a very strong character and courage of conviction. He believes in the principles of equality and freedom and often confronts his father on issues of social justice and religion. He especially disapproves of Kedar Nath (Prem Chopra), who uses his father's clout to exploit the treasury in the temple. His uncle Nandlal (Shammi Kapoor) owns a prosperous dairy farm and keeps himself away from the affairs of religion and social obligations, citing them as unjust and outdated.
    Somen meets a beautiful young woman Kajri (Madhuri Dixit) at the annual festival and is drawn towards her at first sight — her lower social caste notwithstanding — and that becomes the dawn of their love. They part unexpectedly, leaving the fire of love burning in Somen. He tries his best to find Kajri but in vain.
    A year passes and they meet again. Somen finds Kajri working at his uncle Nandlal's farm and his love blossoms. He tries to express his love towards her, but she remains evasive. Destiny left marks of pain and agony on her soul. She was a rape victim, an unwed mother, and unjustly ostracized from her society. She loves Somen as well, but the misfortune of her past weighs on her mind at every moment.
    Somen eventually comes to know about the sad tale of Kajri and is tormented. Kajri's love gives him the strength to confront his father and fight for her respectability. Their love emerges victorious and imparts strength to the common people, burdened under false social values, to fight back.
