wife, Sita; and widowed Gauri, the wife of his late son and mother of two
children, Gappu and Pappu. Kamal runs the business and ensures that

abuses Gauri and Sita, while pampering her married daughter, Bhairavi, to no
end, and even permitting her to leave her husband, Sarang, and live in their
house. Sita gets pregnant, and Kamal, rather dramatically gets married to
Usha Gupta, the daughter of wealthy Advocate Shyam Lal Gupta. Then things
