     14Kalpana Lajmi’s directorial debut tells a story of 
     15extramarital sex in the tea gardens of Assam. 
     16Priyam (Azmi), married to the staid but loving 
     17Ved (Shah), has an affair with her former 
     18boyfriend Jeet (Shaikh) while her husband is 
     19away. She becomes pregnant. Having already 
     20had one miscarriage, she is determined to keep 
     21the baby despite her boyfriend’s protests. On 
     22his return, Ved eventually accepts both his 
     23unfaithful wife and her baby. Lajmi explained 
     24that she set the story in Assam to link the 
     25heroine’s innocence and later loneliness with 
     26the environment, but the easier if less 
     27sympathetic explanation is reviewer Aloknanda 
     28Datta’s (in Splice, July 1986) suggestion that the 
     29gardens merely provide an exotic backdrop. 
     30Famous Assamese singer-composer Hazarika 
     31contributes some fine compositions, 
     32overcoming the mandatory emphasis on 
     33regional folk-music in films set in exotic 
     34locales.
