| Mischief in a joint family - are there any happy outcomes?
Madhu and his sister Paro are orphaned young and brought up by his elder half-brother (Amrit) and sister-in-law (Seeta). Madhu becomes a doctor and establishes practice in the village where he grew up. Continuing to discharge their responsibility as surrogate parent, Amrit and Seeta arrange for his wedding with Radha, heir of wealthy parents.

After the wedding they discover that Radha has epilepsy, which fact was hidden during the marriage. This causes a rift, which is soon patched up.

Chhoti Bahu is a story of lies, deceit, envy, beauty, sacrifice and a sense of community within a joint family environment where three couples live under the same roof, in rural India.

The story-line is good, the acting is moderately good, though not award winning. Editing and photography is good and I would certainly recommend this movie on a rainy afternoon if you wish to reconnect with or find out more about a joint family.
