"The family that prays together, eats together......stays together".

This is the film belief of Ramkishenji, who is happily married to Mamta. They have four lovely grown children - Vivek, Prem, Sangeeta and Vinod, who share close bondings with each other. Sangeeta is married to Anand and they have a sweet little daughter. Vivek marries Sadhna, Prem gets engaged to Preeti and Vinod falls in love with Sapna.

Ramkishenji's drem is to have all his sons and daughter-in-laws stay together, sharing with each other life's joys and sorrows. However, the so-called "well-wishers" of the family keep talking about how families are breaking up in today's times.

One day, problems arise in Sangeets' family. Sangeeta and her husband Anand have to move out of their ancestral home and start life anew. This comes as a jolt to Ramkishenji's family. Ramkshenji's wife Mamta, feels pained for her daughter and starts worrying about the future of her sons. There are talks of separating the boys. But Ramkishenji's ideals prevail. The sons and the daughter-in-laws stand united in their moment of crisis.

Finally Sangeeta and Anand are happily reunited with their family. The sons and daughter-in-laws of Ramkishenji prove that "the family that prays together, eats together.....stays together".
