Plot of Raksha Bandhan movie

Raksha Bandhan 2022 picks up right away in the Chandni Chowk neighborhood, where Lala Kedarnath runs a Pushtaini that is an ancestral "Gol Gappa" (panipuri) shop. He is well-liked, especially by expectant mothers who think that if they consume Gol Gappas from his store, they might give birth to a son. Even in his personal life, he is surrounded by a group of four sisters.

On his mother's deathbed, Lala promised her that he would wait to get married until he had successfully placed his sisters in suitable marriages. He makes every effort to marry off his sisters, but after carefully vetting all potential suitors, he is unsuccessful. Lala's dedication to his sisters often gets in the way of his relationship with his fiance, Sapna. Sapna resolves to wait till his objective is accomplished since he recognizes the significance of Lala's commitment. However, her father Harishankar nags her nonstop to be hitched. Later, Lala was able to collect 18 lakh rupees for Gayatri's dowry. Gayatri marries a man. Lala sells one of his kidneys to raise money for Durga and Laxmi's wedding, but when Gayatri ingests poison, things don't go as planned. She didn't tell Lala about the increased dowry request from her husband and in-laws since she didn't want to add to his worry. Lala acknowledges the drawbacks of the dowry system and swears to empower his other three sisters to the point that they will be able to select their husbands and be married without one.

Sapna is asked to marry the man of her father's choice after Lala severed all links with her. Will Lala and Sapna's relationship end? Will the sisters of Lala pursue careers? If you want to know more, you must watch Raksha Bandhan 2022 otherwise, the suspense will be lost and you won't be able to enjoy the Raksha Bandhan movie.

Raksha Bandhan movie review

In the first half, Raksha Bandhan 2022 makes an effort to depict our culture but never holds a mirror up to it. The second half delivers an easy punch to the gut once the conservatives and bigots have had their fill of the raucous humor and the self-sacrificing sentiments. The majority of the movie is spent praising the brother's devotion, and the sisters are treated like cattle that need to be chained to someone else's house. It is already too late for Lala and the audience to realize the folly of their deeds. 

The story's lesson is: Empowering women is good; dowery is harmful.
