Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, Gulzar
Shankarlal and his wife Parvati go around fixing people’s
lives. In the course of their wanderings they come across Vina
and Aruna. Both are good friends married to non-compatible men.
The do-gooders walk into their lives and everything ends well.
Most parents of young boys and girls think that once they get
their sons and daughters married, their responsibility ceases.
They forget the fact that when two totally strange persons start
living together in matrimony for the first time, there may arise
conflicts of ideas, interest and opinions, which, if not remedied
in time, may assume large proportions and wreck their marriage
and ruin their happiness once and for all. At such a time, there
must be somebody near them, who, with tact and love can steer
clear their lives through the storm and save them from disaster.
Veena, a simple, poor, not so educated and orthodox type of
village girl, under strange circumstances gets married to a
rich boy Rajesh, who is totally opposed to her in his outlook,
which is ultra-modern and whose views about life are totally
western! His one obsession in life is that his wife should don
modern scanty clothes, go out with him to clubs and parties
and give him company in drinking too. In contrast to this, Veena’s
childhood friend Aruna, who is not only rich and well educated
but also is very sophisticated and publicity-crazy, gets married
to a simple middle class boy Madhu, who is an idealistic and
principled young man, who wants her to run his house from whatever
It is but obvious that when
husband and wife and such contrasting nature and upbringing
come together, there are bound to arise a lot of conflicts,
problems and marital bickering between them, to make their lives
a veritable hell!
It is at this juncture, Shirman
Shankarlal and Shrimati Parvati Devi, an elderly couple enter
the lives of the young couples, bringing with them the message
of love and sympathy to teach the couples proper values of life
and to heal the wounds of their sentiments with tact and tenacity.
Whether they become successful
in their mission and why they go on pursuing such a mission
in their lives, from the most interesting part of the story
of Shriman Shrimati.
