‘EK RISHTAA-THE BOND OF LOVE is a story of relationships and how they endure the upheavals of time. The film revolves around these characters, their bindings and bickering as they go through happy and turbulent times Moments that rip them apart, moments that bring them closer,’ Suneel divulges.
EK RISHTAA-THE BOND OF LOVE tells the story of Vijay Kapoor (Amitabh Bachchan). A dynamic businessman, his source of strength is his wife Pratima (Raakhee). They have three daughters Rani, Priya and Priti (Juhi Chawla), the eldest daughter who is the apple of her father’s eye. The son, Ajay (Akshay Kumar), is studying abroad to secure his Masters in Information Technology.
An aspiring business graduate Rajesh Purohit (Mohnish Bahl) idolises Vijay Kapoor and the latter is impressed by his qualities and capabilities. Priti falls in love with Rajesh and Vijay Kapoor approves their relationship.
Meanwhile, Ajay wishes to start his own business to which Vijay Kapoor convinces him that it is imperative for him to first gain experience in the family business as he is just a novice, and later delve into different spheres.
As they start working together, ideological differences start cropping up between the father and son. Obviously there is a generation gap between them. Ajay has imbibed western ideologies, which he wants to apply, while Vijay Kapoor strongly opposes it. This leads to a rift between the father and son.
Obstinacy to their stands worsens the condition, leading to a fallout between the father and son. What happens next? What happens to the bonds of love that once held the family together? Will these relationships ever reunite? Will they stand the test of time?
