A stern matriarch, Kokilaben, finds a perfectly meek daughter-in-law in Gopi. Although it was her interest to rule over her, she eventually becomes her mentor and encourages her to gain knowledge, turn confident and find her voice.
Kokilaben’s long drawn out search for a daughter-in-law finally bore fruit when she set her eyes on Gopi. Gopi was an unloved orphan, a simple girl living her life on to the generosity of her uncle, while silently bearing the exploitation of her aunt, Urmila and cousin, Rashi. Gopi’s lack of confidence stemmed from the fact that she was illiterate. Her fairy tale marriage to Aham, Kokilaben’s son and the scion of the millionaire Modi family, turned her world upside down. She was in no way, a match for his sophistication and so, Aham kept his distance from her. Although Gopi had great respect for Kokilaban and Aham, his lack of love for her, also hurt her deeply. In order to make her appealing to Aham, Kokilaben decided to mentor Gopi and make her strong and self-confident. Gopi taught herself to read and write and gained wordly wisdom but her soul was still uncorrupt and her heart, full of love. Finally, Aham realizes the true value of Gopi’s love and falls in love with his wife after years of marriage.
