Where did you watch this movie?

Evocative and thought-provoking, this intense socially-relevant drama revolves around Shashi, Akbar and a group of young people pledge never to give nor receive dowry. Acting against his mother's wishes, Shashi marries Sugandha Srivastav, and does not accept any dowry. He arranges his sister's, Rama's marriage with Ravi Verma, the son of Goverdhan and Shakuntala. Goverdhan and Shakuntala did not get any dowry, and are quite upset, though Ravi is happy. The parents begin to pressure Ravi for remarriage, so that they can get dowry. When he refuses, they send Ravi away blinded by their greed. Stopping at nothing, Goverdhan plans to kill Rama and make it look like an accident, but things go wrong, and instead Shakuntala gets badly burned, and has to be hospitalized. Ever opportunistic and plotting, Goverdhan uses the unfortunate turn of events to blame Rama for attempting to kill Shakuntala, and has her arrested. Now Shashi will have to put all his resources together to free his sister, as the motives and evidence are not in her favour.
