RIWAYAT- When traditions kill

Young, beautiful, and friendly Anita is in love with Raj, the very handsome and shy son of millionaire Seth Desai. Soon after marriage a work related assignment takes Anita far away from Mumbai to a beautiful village. Raj reluctantly agrees for this separation given his soft and giving nature.

An emotional bond develops between Anita and Radha, her caretaker at the dak bungalow in the village. Anita is disturbed by the hardships faced by a heavily pregnant Radha in raising her two daughters while coping with her drunken husband Gangaram. Things take a turn for worse when Radha unexpectedly delivers at home. The shocking truth of female infanticide by Gangaram is concealed by the willingness of the PHC doctor to certify the death as “natural”, and the careless, casual approach of the police. Anita runs from pillar to post and succeeds in exposing the truth. Her victory in bringing Gangaram to justice is however overshadowed by the destruction and social isolation it brings to Radha and her daughters. Anita becomes the defence lawyer for Gangaram in an attempt to redeem herself.

Young and handsome Kabir is Anita’s driver in the village. He is a wise man of few words who writes poetry in his quite moments and has a caring nature and a beautiful voice. Given their instant chemistry and the proximity, a platonic friendship soon develops between Kabir and Anita. Kabir supports Anita in her battle by becoming her friend, philosopher, and guide. Just as she gets deeply involved in the emotionally disturbing case of Gangaram, Anita realises that she is pregnant. Complications of early pregnancy force her to return to the city.

Anita is shattered facing the shocking suggestion of aborting her baby girl by her own father in law and walks away from Raj who is unable to oppose his dominant father. Anita’s tremendous inner strength, compassion, and resolve for justice are tested when she overcomes her own emotional turmoil while defending Gangaram in the court. Anita wins the case but her victory is overshadowed by her own loss. Radha and Kabir provide her the much needed emotional support at these trying times. Love conquers when Raj returns to Anita after overcoming his dominating father and giving up everything to be with his wife. A new life begins after their tearful reunion.
