Well known Indian astrologer Jyotibhaskar Pandit Satyanarayan Chaturvedi wishes good luck to a doctor, who is about to perform surgery on a woman, but also tells him that the patient will not survive. The doctor (a non-believer in Astrology) scoffs at this, and proceeds to the operation theatre. However, just as the astrologer had predicted, the patient dies.

The astrologer lives with his wife, Devaki, and their son, Nandu. The astrologer would like to see Nandu marrying a woman named Indu Agnihotri. But Nandu loves Sushma Chatopadhyay and wants to marry her.

It is at this stage that the father tells his son that he is destined to marry twice in his lifetime, with his first wife dying within eleven months of their marriage, after which he will re-marry.

An educated Nandu must now decide, whether to believe his father, let go of Sushma, and explore an option of marrying her after Indu dies, or, defy his astrological beliefs and marry her, with a possible eventuality of her death within eleven months of their marriage.


All the songs are composed by Jaidev, and feature semi-classical and devotional songs.
