The first feature film made by Merchant Ivory productions, this wryly comic portrait of an arranged marriage stars Shashi Kapoor as Prem, a young Indian newlywed who is having problems with his beautiful and headstrong young bride, Indu (Leela Naidu). Thrown together as complete strangers, the couple struggle with loneliness, poverty and homesickness as they attempt to come to terms with their new situation. Prem embarks on an odyssey to get help and advice from various sources, including his overbearing mother (Durga Khote), a supposedly worldly wise friend, an American seeker of enlightenment and a swami.
