The family that prays together.... stays together...! This is the firm belief of Ramkishen, who is happily married to Mamta. They have four lovely grown up children - Vivek, Prem, Sangeeta and Vinod, who share close bondings with each other. Sangeeta is married to Anand and they have a sweet little daughter. Vivek marries Sadhana, Prem gets engaged to Preeti and Vinod falls in love with Sapna.Ramkishen's dream is to have all his sons and daughter-in-laws stay together, sharing with each other life's joys and sorrows. However, the so-called "well-wishers" of the family keep talking about how families are breaking up in today's times. One day, problems arise in Sangeeta's family. Sangeeta and her husband Anand have to move out of their ancestral home and start life anew. This comes as a jolt to Ramkishen's family. Ramkishen's wife, Mamta, feels pained for her daughter and starts worrying about the future of her sons. There are talks of separating the boys. But Ramkishen's ideals prevail. The sons and the daughter-in-laws stand united in their moment of crisis.Finally, Sangeeta and Anand are happily re-united with their family. The sons and daughter-in-laws of Ramkishen prove that "the family that prays together, eats together... stays together".
Reviews : “Hum Saath-Saath Hain is 99's biggest success story… Sooraj Barjatya has indeed made history, coming up with yet another hit after the blockbuster Hum Aapke Hain Koun. Even Mehboob Khan never repeated the success of Mother India, and neither did Ramesh Sippy replicate, let alone surpass Sholay's success. But Sooraj Barjatya did it with the back-to-back successes of Maine Pyar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! Now in Hum Saath-Saath Hain, he has a hat-trick of hits. Agreed, it hasn't matched the success of Hum Aapke Hain Koun, but it is still the biggest hit of the year. In an industry where success has turned out to be so hard to get, perhaps we need to learn to appreciate our success stories more. And like it or lump it, Hum Saath-Saath Hain has been quite successful, proving the contention that Sooraj Barjatya has his finger on the audience's pulse. As the veteran distributor on the Eastern circuit, Lala Damani, puts it, "No one understands the audience's tastes better than Sooraj Barjatya does. He has already provided himself as the biggest and most successful Indian director ever". Need we say more?”- NP Yadav , Screen (December 17, 1999) “The mother of all mainstream films tells us we are all together, bound by sanskar, parampara, dharma, shastra, karma, prem, shraddha... a grand fantasy that fills the atrophied, atomised turn-of-the century heart with glee.… Strong emotions, handled with elegance and verve with all the key players pitching in with powerful performances. Hum Saath-Saath Hain is truly a collaborative effort, where all the performers effortlessly blend into a seamless whole to create an exhilarating picture of familiar bliss and bonding."- Nikhat Kazmi, The Sunday Times (November 7, 1999) “Hum Saath-Saath Hain holds your attention with its songs, the colours, the costumes, the movement - no time to think…. Everyone has given a commendable performance. Worth noting are performances from Reema, Mohnish, Saif, Salman... and surprise, surprise- Sonali who has done wonders in a miniscule role of a shy, but mature Preeti. Whether you agree or not with the film and its maker, at least you know you have not wasted your time and sensibility with Hum Saath-Saath Hain.”- Free Press Journal (November 12, 1999)
