Kasauti is an Indian drama based in Bombay. This movie shows the interplay of class and family obligation. In the beginning, a local outlaw named Heera chases the main character, a slum-dwelling girl named Sapna. Sapna has no stable family to turn to, which makes her an easy target. Heera wishes to have her as his own, but Sapna is saved by a taxi driver who develops an affection for her. The taxi driver wishes to marry her, but class concerns and disapproving family create many barriers. When Sapna's life finally turns around, she might return to Bombay for love. She could also follow the path of money and fame.
