     12A warmly lit, vividly coloured love story about 
     13a young writer in search of inspiration in an old 
     14country mansion. He strikes up a telephonic 
     15relationship with an anonymous woman caller, 
     16isolated in her lavish urban flat. The interaction 
     17provides the writer with materials for a new 
     18fiction. The viewer, however, is shown 
     19something of the woman’s life: she is the 
     20mistress of a wealthy old man (who remains 
     21absent from the film) and thus supports her 
     22lower middle-class family. The ending deploys 
     23a device familiar from Bengali short stories as 
     24the two protagonists meet each other in a train 
     25compartment where the melody of his voice 
     26allows her a moment of recognition. Sen 
     27weaves allusions to Tagore’s Kshudita Pashan 
     28into the narrative, but the film seems to hinge 
     29on an exploration of what is shown or voiced 
     30and what is unspoken or absent.
