Usha is a peculiar specimen of Indian Womanhood. She is prepared to sacrifice her life, her emotions, her sentiments—her everything to arrive at a better home with perpetual happiness.
After saving Surbhi's life Usha does her utmost to get her settled in her life. But during this process, Usha finds that she has also fallen In love with Arun. 

Pankaj is the other man who has definite ideas to acquire Usha at any cost. He creates an invisible and unbreakable wall in between the pure love of Usha and Arun. But Usha is made up of the material which cannot be unmoulded. Pankaj's apparent defeat is watched with interest. Usha is married to Arun. 

Still, the villainy has not left the path of Usha. "Either mine or no one's.". That's the motto of Pankaj. His defeat takes sour shape. Ruthless revenge crashes on the wedding night. He misguides Arun by concocting tales of Usha's infidelity.
And the night two souls were to become one — Arun deserts his newly wedded-wife Usha. Her hopes of a bliss-full union are smashed. Pankaj proceeds via his dirty tricks. He entangles Arun with Maya, a modern madame. All this ruins the life of Usha. Now it is impossible for her to live in the house. But she claims her rights. None can drive her from her house. Indian Woman enters her wedded life with a vow of leaving the house only after her death.
One dreadful night she finds fire all around her. She attempts to get through it. But during her encounters, she has come out sight-less. An open and shut case is before the court. The typical Indian Woman is on trial. 

Will Justice bind Usha for her utter innocence? Was Pankaj successful in embroidering his deadly designs? Did Arun come to know about the facts which were kept shielded before his eyes? For apt answers to all these natural questions await the arrival of "Akhand Saubhagyavati" in your town in your favorite theatre.
