     12Kannada psychodrama based on the true-life 
     13case studies of the Pai couple, practicing 
     14psychiatrists and the film’s producers. Usha 
     15(Shruti), daughter of a retired school teacher, 
     16turns down a marriage proposal from a 
     17progressive US-based engineer in favour of 
     18university colleague Vikas (Srikant). Vikas 
     19abandons Usha when his oppressive father 
     20demands a dowry she cannot pay. After 
     21psychiatric treatment, Usha joins a rural 
     22voluntary organisation where she falls for its 
     23leader, Francis (Heblikar). The demise of her 
     24second lover after local gossip takes on 
     25religious overtones causes a further 
     26psychological crisis. The psychiatrist in the film 
     27(Karnad), representing the producers, offers a 
     28sociological critique of the events.
