is a beautiful, intelligent and multi-faceted computer science student
in Mumbai. As she is about to pass out of college, her parents begin to
talk about her marriage. That's when she tells them that she likes a boy
called Tej and wants to marry him. Tej also loves her but is reluctant
to accept the proposal because of a problem in his family. While he does
not want to cheat her by keeping the truth from her, he is scared of
losing her if he tells her about his family's problem. His friends try
to convince him that every family has some problem so he need not even
mention it to Taanya. Finally, when Tej and Taanya's families meet,
there seems to be no problem and the proposal is mutually agreed upon. A
grand wedding takes place and Taanya arrives in her sasuraal. The
moment of shock come when all the rituals and ceremonies are over and
the guests are all gone. Taanya realizes that Tej's household is full of
men, just men. All the chachis, mamis, buas etc who attended the
wedding had all gone and she was the only woman in the house. Taanya
does not know how to handle this. Though in college days she was never
uncomfortable among boys and she grew up with a brother, this was
another feeling altogether. A life always surrounded by only men ' all
strangers to begin with ' looks unimaginable. She stays put anyways but
within twenty four hours she realizes that these men are like pebbles on
a beach ' all different from each other and rubbing each other sour.
She realizes that each one is difficult to deal with. If one wants
omlette for breakfast, the other wants halwa. And as if this was not
enough there is a sasurji who is kind of a hitler and a chacha sasur who
is a hitler-hater. An old dada sasur is also there to make matters
worse. Taanya's despairs as she realizes that she needs to play the
warden of a boy's hostel where the boys ranged 60 to 12 in age groups.
Taanya gives up, accuses Tej of cheating her by not telling the truth
and leaves the house. She returns to her maternal home, only to find
that her brother and bhabhi all packed and ready to leave the house and
her mother crying. Taanya's bhabhi does not want to take the
responsibility of her in-laws and hence she moves out of the house with
Taanya's brother. And before a shocked Taanya can utter a word about
her own problem, her mother tells her that a woman, like a needle is
supposed to stitch a family together and not break it. She asks Taanya
to always keep her family together and never do anything to break it.
Taanya has no alternative and she returns ' determined to face the

was Rekha's biggest solo hit. She's not married in the movie ... she
comes to spend time with her married sister in her sasuraal and falls in
love with her sister's devar, and he with her. So there was romance,
lots of light hearted stuff and towards the end, there were emotional
scenes. She's not a bahu at all during the movie - they might change
that for the show ... but I guess there will be romance before she gets
