The story of "HAMAARA SANSAAR" is a tale of happiness and woes of a small family. Pratap was manager in a business firm in the city of Surat in Gujarat. Other family members were his wife Geeta and two kids Amar and Asha.

Prataps step mother was residing in a village with her son Prem and daughter Priya. Prem was a farmer. Beside being a graduate he was a big folk singer. He was deeply in love with Roopa the one and the only daughter of Surat's prominent business magnate Seth Harishchndra.

Priya was wedded to Bhimsen, but being a darling child of mummy she hated doing housework in her father-in-law's home. So Bhimsen too lived with her at her parents' house. Prem disliked this and decided to force back his sister and brother-in-law to their house.

The cyclone of unhappiness and distress swept down into the peaceful life of Pratap no sooner his step mother came to stay with him accompanied by her cunning daughter and crafty son-in-law.

Small and big thefts started occurring every now and then in Pratap's house, followed by flare ups of quarrels emerging from children's trivial matters. Pratap repeatedly became victim of misunderstandings... Geeta also went on enduring till everything reached beyond limits.

Prem and his Fiencee Roopa started a musical party and commenced all India tour during which Roopa was kidnaped by dacoits... and Prem played with his life to rescue her! Framed into a murder charge Pratap helplessly set out to commit suicide.
Step mother accompanied by her daughter went and stayed with Bhimsen and his mother.

Geeta's world totally plunged in to darkness, but not surrendering to the defeat, she took up challenge and with both of her kids stepped out courageously to fight out the torrid tornade of trials and tribulations.

What followed next? Did Pratap really commit suicide? Had Prem really lost his life? Was the 'good ' paid by goodness and 'evil' by the bad fruits? This tale of peace and distress, happiness and gloom, life and death breather in every home of the world... it is "HAMAARA SANSAAR"... Better see it on the screen with your own eyes.
