    • Amit (Amitabh Bachchan) a poet decides to bury his past life along with his love for Chandni (Rekha) when he meets Shobha (Jaya Bachchan).
      Shobha’s life had come to a standstill after her fiancé and Amit’s brother Shekhar (Shashi Kapoor) dies in a plane crash.
      Amit had only come to mourn the death of his brother with Shobha but ends up sacrificing his own love and life in an attempt to give shobha a new lease of life.
      When fate brings Amit and Chandni face to face again, both are married to different people – but neither can ignore their feelings for each other.
      Silsila is a story, thwarted by society’s demands, which reappear as adultery but can it survive in the face of society?
