Unusual film by noted playwright Deuti Barua. The middle-class hero’s diffidence for the girl he loves is contrasted with the lofty idealism of a friend, and the more humane promise of marriage another friend makes to a lonely, elderly woman. The film, accused of upholding the very middle-class conservatism it seeks to critique, was acclaimed for its unusual scripting style.
