Ghar Ek Mandir is a heartwarming family drama film released in 1984, directed by K. Bapaiah. Starring an ensemble cast including Shashi Kapoor, Moushumi Chatterjee, and Mithun Chakraborty, the movie beautifully explores the complexities of family relationships, love, and sacrifice. The story revolves around the unconventional love triangle between Vijay (Shashi Kapoor), Mohini (Moushumi Chatterjee), and Amar (Mithun Chakraborty). Vijay, a successful businessman, is married to Mohini, and they have a blissful life with their young daughter Krishna. However, a twist of fate brings Amar, Mohini's former lover, back into their lives. Amar had left Mohini years ago due to his mother's opposition to their relationship.

As Amar reenters their lives, he realizes that Mohini is now happily married to Vijay. He respects their relationship and is determined not to disrupt it. Despite being torn between his love for Mohini and his loyalty to his friend Vijay, Amar manages to maintain his distance and even befriends Krishna. He becomes an integral part of their lives as a godfather figure to Krishna.

However, as time passes, Amar's love for Mohini resurfaces, creating an emotional turmoil within him. Mohini, too, finds herself being drawn to Amar, despite her commitment to Vijay and her family. The film beautifully portrays the dilemma faced by all the characters, dealing delicately with their emotional conflicts.

The characters find solace and guidance in their visits to the temple, seeking spiritual strength and resolution. The temple becomes a symbol of hope and a sanctuary where they can find answers to their dilemmas.
