In her desperation she even solicits the help of Mama Bansari (Kadar Khan) who is a professional matchmaker. Because his sister is harassed for dowry his idealism leads him to establish a small-scale organisation campaigning the anti-dowry cause. On being invited to the wedding of Chairman of the organisation he is appaled to see his parents making irrational dowry demands which the girl's father is unable to afford. Consequently the bride Sughanda (Farha) drives away the barrat regardless of the consequences that this fiery act may take. In a dramatic turn of events, Shashi falls head long in love with the courageous and they get married, much to the shock of his mother, whose plans are rudely shattered.
