Chameli Ki Shaadi (1986)
Summary:Charandas intends to marry Chameli, but he is poor and his plans clash with those of his father and his wrestling trainer.
The film is a satire on caste system in India. Charandas (Anil Kapoor) is a bachelor who aspires to become a wrestler. He is training himself under the tutelage of Mastram Pehelwan , who preaches & practices absolute abstinence. Charan has no problem with his life, but his elder brother Bhajandas (Satyen Kappu) & his sister-in-law (Tabassum) do. The film is also one of the examples of a female-centric movie where Amrita Singh as the young, headstrong, outspoken Chameli, was acknowledged as the star of the film, and her role was later critiqued to be one of the first takes on the realization of feminine desires and domination in Indian cinema.
