Where did you watch this movie?

This extraordinary period drama brings to life Maharashtrian family values, culture and traditions of the 1930s and 1940s era with great authenticity, through the trials and tribulations in the lives of an ordinary couple. Meera (Veena Jamkar) is a young village girl from rural Maharashtra, who has been living with her aunt since her mother’s death. She forms a close bond with her cousin, Madhav (Kashyap Parulekar), who later goes on to pursue higher education in Pune. Ultimately, the two fall in love, express their emotions to each other and get married, and shift to Pune to live a better life. However, their happiness is short lived, as Meera suffers a miscarriage. To add to their woes, their world shatters when Meera becomes permanently disabled (following a major illness). Madhav takes the onus of treating her personally, but in vain. That’s when their life changes forever, as Sunanda (Shruti Marathe) enters Madhav’s life.
