     12Political melodrama set in the 20s addressing 
     13the practice of purchasing slave girls, often 
     14given as dowry in a marriage, by zamindar 
     15families under the rule of the Nizam of 
     16Hyderabad. Kamakshi (Archana), a daasi 
     17bonded to Jayasimha Rao, becomes pregnant 
     18by her owner. At the command of the 
     19zamindar’s self-indulgent and childless wife, 
     20Kamakshi is forced to have an abortion. The 
     21film uses a neo-expressionist style e.g. the dark 
     22servants’ quarters, the drumbeats announcing 
     23the pregnancy of the landlord’s sister 
     24counterpointed with the daasi’s screams as the 
     25midwife terminates her pregnancy, etc.
