Synopsis

BALRAM, a villager is endowed with more plight as his father’s last ritual commences. His father’s death not just made him fatherless, but alone shoulder with dependability and burden. DEVKI RANI, the old mother with a declining body and falling eyesight has very meagre to offer. The banker’s reminder about the fixed deposit and persuading Balram to become the sole nominee seems most favourable. Considering a suitable groom for daughter Rashmi and setting up the dairy business again, ignites more to the occasion. The appetite of an exceeding interest rate and confiscating all the money after his mother’s death makes Balram THINK.
