This socially relevant drama delves into sensitive social ideas about astrology, blind faith, superstitious beliefs and total dependence on an imperfect science, through the trials and travails in the life of a newly married couple. This marriage is the second for the husband, whose first wife had died in an accident. His family now relies heavily on their astrologer for an auspicious match and believe in him completely. The wife's family doesn't take astrology so seriously. After the wedding, the wife confesses her horoscope (Jaathakam) given prior to the wedding was probably incorrect. The husband's family verifies it and finds out that her horoscope doesn't match with that offer husband. Then, in a shocking move, they try to dissolve the marriage - mentally torturing the new wife and tearing her husband between his family and his wife in the process.The wife's brother (an army officer) comes in and tries to take control of the situation. With bold twists and turns, this thought-provoking drama depicts the disastrous consequences of complete and blind faith in anything. Will the newly married young woman succeed in saving her marriage? Can her in-laws ever come to truly understand the meaning of marriage?
