Duniya Na Mane (1937)
Nirmala (Shanta Apte) is trapped into marrying the old widower Kakasaheb (Keshavrao Date). He is a progressive lawyer with a son and a daughter of Nirmala's age. She refuses to consummate the union, claiming repeatedly that while suffering can be borne, injustice cannot. After facing many hurdles including an aunt (Vimala Vasishta), her mother-in-law, and a lascivious stepson Jugal (Raja Nene), her husband has a change of heart and magnanimously commits suicide, enjoining Nirmala to marry someone more suitable. The change occurs mainly through his widowed daughter Sushila (Shakuntala Paranjype) who provides a forcefully feminist movement in a speech to the young bride.
