     12Major hit by the most successful Bengali 
     13director of the 80s. The poor Jayanta (Paul) 
     14loves Rupa, the rich daughter of the local 
     15zamindar, but is also indebted to his music 
     16teacher. When Jayanta upstages Rupa in a 
     17music contest, the zamindar uses his financial 
     18hold over the music teacher to extract a 
     19promise that Jayanta will never sing again. 
     20Eventually, when Jayanta shows he wants to 
     21keep his promise come what may, the 
     22zamindar relents and allows his daughter to 
     23marry Jayanta. The film borrows from a bawdy 
     24latter-day version of the folk jatra with its often 
     25lewd speech (an idiom associated particularly 
     26with this director), cueing the editing to the 
     27dialogue. Lahiri departed from his usual 
     28electronic rock score and composed several 
     29hits in a ‘classical’ style.
