Aurat Teri Yehi Kahani (1988)
(Certified: Aug 19, 1988)
Shortly after giving birth to Savitri, her mom passes away, leaving her disabled dad, Dharamraj (Dr Shreeram Lagoo), no alternative save to re-marry Champa (Aruna Irani), who gives birth to a son, Ketan. Champa is very cruel to Savitri and severely slaps and beats her around. Years later, the children have grown up, and Dharamraj has taken to alcohol in a big way. Then Ketan (Shashi Puri) gets a job in the city and moves out. Shortly thereafter they receive a letter from him that he has got a job, but needs a security deposit of a thousand Rupees. Savitri (Meenakshi Sheshadri) agrees to marry an aging rich widower, Thakur (Nilu Phule), in return for the thousand Rupees, if she does not return the money by Diwali. Savitri, who loves Satyavan (Raj Babbar), is forced to marry Thakur, but on the night of the marriage, the Thakur dies because of a snake-bite. Widowed Savitri is molested by his younger brother, Balwant (Raj Kiran), and tries to kill herself. She is saved by a few villagers, but then subsequently sold to a Madam, Jamnunabai (Sushma Sheth), who wants her to work as a Courtesan for the rest of her life. Her patrons are happy and a rich man, Nawab Hasmat Ali Baig (Vikas Anand), is willing to pay a huge sum of money for sexual favors. The question is what will Savitri do under these circumstances?
