Many films in the Hindi film industry have been made about and centred around happy families who lose their happiness. So many that there could be a genre of its own called “The ‘happy-family-destroyed’ drama”. Pyar Ka Mandir is a relatively good movie in this category because the values in this family are very strong, and unsurprisingly, the children are those who ruin this happiness. It’s a happy wheels demo very wide disease in our world: when parents are no longer needed, the children reveal their true characters. But not Mithun Chakraborty’s Vijay, who has such an unconditional love for his siblings and his beloved mother that he sacrifices his own happiness for his family and gets jailed. When he comes back, he finds out that his house, “The Temple of Love”, no longer exists. When he meets his brothers, he is shocked at their attitude towards him and does not manage to meet his mom, who is absent. Then the story of his struggle begins and takes more shape.1
