Ghasita is a common villager and like many in his village, he too is burdened by poverty. Being the sole bread-winner of the family, he does not think twice the moment he gets a chance to become rich even at the cost of his daughter Laxmi being exploited. He fools the villagers by projecting his daughter as a Devi and pockets the money he earns in the name of God. As the wealth starts pouring in, his stature in the village and his lifestyle changes. He starts believing that he is now the most powerful man of the village eventually becoming cunning, shrewd and greedy.
Suhaagi is a simple lady who is extremely loyal to her husband Ghasita, despite being ill-treated and beaten by him. She never raises her voice against the domestic violence she faces, but has one sole aim in life; that is to save her baby Laxmi from being exploited as a Goddess by her husband. Her efforts go in vain but that does not deter her from wanting her daughter to lead a normal life like any other child in the village.
