Seeta Aur Geeta

Dir.:ected by Ramesh Sippy | 2h 42min | 1972


Seeta and Geeta (Hema Malini) are twins who are separated after their mother dies giving birth to them. Seeta is brought up in the city in a mansion but she is treated worse than a servant by her abusive money-grubbing aunt Kaushalya (Manorama) and meek uncle. Geeta meanwhile, grows up in destitution with her adoptive mother to be a gutsy street-performer. The two sisters with contrasting personalities switch places when Seeta, fed up of her aunt’s daily taunts, tries to commit suicide. She is rescued by Raka (Dharmendra), Geeta’s fellow performer, while Geeta is mistaken to be Seeta by the police and is returned to the mansion. Unlike Seeta, Geeta goes on a war-path and unleashes her fury on her tormentors. Directed by Ramesh Sippy, the film features Hema Malini in a hilarious double role and inspired several clones in subsequent years.
