Movie Plot

Kamal Nain Singh (Utpal Dutt) lives with his family consisting of his wife Sudha (Indrani Mukherjee), his marriageable son and daughter, Atin Singh (Jeetendra) and Vasna (Ruhi), respectively.

Kamal Nain Singh has always been a cunning person who finds opportunities to make village people fool and extort money from them. For this reason, no one in the village is ready to make any relationship with Kamal Nain's family.

Atin works as a sales manager for an automobile company in Bombay. He meets Veena (Asha Sachdev), the daughter of a rich man Chowdhry (Om Shivpuri). Both Veena and Atin fall in love and wants to marry. On the other hand, Vikram (Umrani), one of the close friends of Veena, has an evil eye on her.

Twist in the story

One day Kamal Nain Singh learns that his daughter Vasna is planning to elope with Ratan (Viraj Kumar), her cousin. Kamal Nain somehow manages to stop Vasna, beats Ratan, and threats him not to show his face again.

It is high time for Kamal Nain to think about the marriage of his daughter, but he needs 50,000 rupees as a dowry. Kamal Nain plans to marry Atin and asks 50,000 in dowry so that he can arrange money for his daughter's marriage.

Ram Kanhai (Krishan Dhawan) has a niece Ketki (Shabana Azmi). He is ready to give Rs. 50,000 as dowry for Ketki's marriage. Kamal Nain fixes his daughter's marriage and asks Atin to marry Ketki.

Atin (Jeetendra) reluctantly agrees to marry Ketki (Shabana Azmi) to save his father's reputation in society and for the sake of the marriage of his sister Vasna. However, on his first wedding night, he tells Ketki that he loves Veena (Asha Sachdev).

Ketki is shocked to learn the reality but remains silent. On the other hand, after the marriage, Atin goes to Bombay and convinces Veena that he will get a divorce from his wife so they can get married.

Atin prepares divorce papers on the pretext that their marriage has not been consummated. On the contrary, their marriage gets consummated unintentionally. Ketki silently signs the divorce papers.

Atin leaves his house and marries Veena (Asha Sachdev). Ketki stays with her in-laws in the village and looks after them. She gives birth to Atin's son Munna (Master Inderjeet).

After a few years

Munna (5-6 years old) once meets Nirmal (Vinod Mehra), the Station Master. Nirmal treats Munna like his own son and develops a deep bonding with him. Kamal Nain (Utpal Dutt) requests Niral to marry Ketki (Shabana Azmi), to which both Ketki and Nimral agree.

On the other hand, Atin does not like the lifestyle of Veena and asks her to mend her ways. However, Veena leaves Atin and starts living with her friend Vikram (Umrani).

Veena wants a divorce and prepares documents mentioning their marriage has not been consummated. Atin now realizes his mistake and understands Ketki's feelings.

What happens next is the rest of the story of the film Ek Hi Raasta.
