Bidaai (transl. Farewell) is a 1974 Indian Hindi-language drama film, produced and directed by L. V. Prasad under the Prasad Productions Pvt Ltd banner. It stars Jeetendra and Leena Chandavarkar, with music composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film was a remake of the Telugu film Thalla? Pellama? (1970).[1] Durga Khote, who played the widowed mother of Jeetendra and Satyen Kapu, won the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.



The film begins in a village where a wise lady, Parvati, raises her two sons, Prabhakar & Sudhakar, along with her dumb daughter, Gauri. Soon after getting a fine job, Prabhakar quits and neglects his family. However, Parvati stands strong and strives hard to educate Sudhakar. Years roll by, and Sudhakar joins the college, where he falls for Padma, daughter of a millionaire Seth Dharmdas. Parallelly, in an anecdote, Gauri loves a pure Murli, which his cheapskate father Makhan Seth opposes. As a result, Gauri commits suicide, and Murli follows her—besides, Prabhakar has an extravagant life in false prestige and bribes, which is turndown by his wife, Pooja. The couple is blessed with a genuine boy, Krishna, who is moral. Meanwhile, Padma marries Sudhakar without her father’s acceptance. However, she is unable to acclimatize to poverty and her husband’s priority toward his mother. Hence, she separates Sudhakar from his mother, which Parvati also insists on. Now, Sudhakar wants to teach the Padma a lesson, so he forges as a gambler & drunkard. Simultaneously, Krishna learns about his grandmother and moves for her. By the time Parvati is on her deathbed, she is heartfelt with joy to see her grandson, and he serves her. As the clock runs, Padma becomes pregnant and gives birth to a boy, but Sudhakar splits the baby from the mother. Thus, Dharmdas files a case where Sudhakar proclaims it’s a play to convey genuine motherly affection when Padma pleads for pardon. At last, they move to Parvati, including Prabhakar, who went bankrupt. Finally, the movie ends with Parvati happily leaving her last breath in the hands of the children.
