Chandni (Eesha Koppikhar) belongs to a middle-class
family, living in one of the tiny by lanes of old
Bhopal. Her little world consists of her doting father,
her two younger siblings Anuj and Sandhya and her music.
Chandni, who is deeply attached to her school going
brother and sister, is trained in classical and folk
She falls in love with Prem (Sonu Sood) while practicing
for a stage performance and is happily looking forward
to their engagement. Her father's death comes as a big
blow and suddenly from being a naive 'bride-to-be' she
dons the mantle of being the bread winner of her
Life is picture perfect until, on the day of their
engagement Chandni's father passes away... suddenly she
becomes the eldest in her family. On one hand, her 'mehendi'
adorned hands are beckoning her to the dream home for
her fiancť and on the other are her siblings, whom she
cannot take along with her. Chandni decides not to marry
so that she can bring up her little brother and sister
Her father's death makes Prem realize that her siblings
need her more. He understands her and stands by her
through thick and thin as she goes through her struggle.
He unconditionally waits for Chandni for 12 long years
until she fulfills all her responsibilities as an elder
Sandhya (Ishita Panchal/Amrita Prakash) is the shy eight
year old sister of Chandni, trailed behind her
everywhere, holding on to her 'dupatta'. After her
father's death, Chandni decides to groom Sandhya to be
independent and street-smart. Hence the meek unsure girl
of yesteryear transforms into a confident ambitious
girl. Sandhya has utmost reverence and love for Chandni.
She also has an exceptional affinity towards Prem.

Prem hails from a rich business family. He is an
unconventional ghazal singer full of mischief and
pranks... He annoys his mother no end by focus on his
music rather than the family business. The minute he sets
eyes on Chandni, he falls head over heels in love with
Premís mother Sulbha (Smita Jayakar), an elegant lady, a
doting mother wants the best for her son. She wants him to
give up his carefree ways and focus on the family
business. She is very happy when her son becomes a
successful singer .Now her only desire is to see Prem
married to a girl who will be totally devoted to him and
his family. She accepts Chandni with open arms.
Chandniís father Brij Bhushan (Aloknath) has been a father
and mother to his three children. He takes care of his
office affairs and household chores with equal ease.
Anuj (Amey Pandya / Vishal Malhotra) the younger brother
is a playful energetic 10 year old boy. His cricket antics
break something or the other in the house every single
day. He strikes an immediate chord with Pram on meeting
him. The death of his father brings about a big change in
him. He becomes a quite introvert. He wishes to grow up as
soon as possible in order to relieve Chandni of her duties
and take charge of the house. Consequently Anuj becomes
career oriented and does well for himself.
Dr Prabhat (Vallabh Vyas) is not only Bhushan's family
doctor, but also his childhood friend. He shares an
affectionate bond with Bhushan's children and considers
them as his own. After Bhushan's demise, Chandni sees in
him a father figure and seeks his advice in all decisions.
As predicted by Chandniís father, Prem continued to stand
by Chandni throughout her struggle. Truly... sometimes the
greatest love stories are... the ones that stand the test
Sonu Sood and Eesha Koppikar have acted so well, more than
expectations. Like every Rajshri film, Ek Vivah .. too is
rich in emotions and mirrors Indian traditions and culture
with utmost simplicity and understanding. Obviously
portraying the lives of noble and morally upright people
which is Rajshriís customary approach.
