Summary
A Zamindar family who live in the Badi Haveli, owned by two brothers, Bade Babu and Chhote Babu. Wine flows freely in their house and the brothers prefer the tinkling anklets of courtesans to the endearing smiles of their wives. However, Chlote Babu's wife cannot reconcile herself to the hedonistic habits of her spouse, and the she rises in revolt. At this juncture of the lives of the Bade Haveli residents, comes Bhootnath a village simpleton, who finds a job at the Mohini Sindoor factor as a clerk. Bhootnath soon strikes a warm relationship with Jaba, the factory owner's daughter. Meanwhile, Chhoti Badu reads that applying Mohini Sindoor will bring her errant husband back. She sends for Bhoodnath and asks him to get her some sindoor. In an effort to bringing her errant husband back, Chhoti Badu sets an example of self-sacrifice that leaves everyone of the Badi Haveli in astonishment
