     13With hypnotic visual rhythms and a remarkable 
     14mise-en-scene of emotional tonalities, Mishra 
     15shows the lives of three women living in the 
     16modernising town of Bhubhaneshwar, its 
     17skyline still dominated by magnificent temple 
     18architecture. Vijaya’s husband died a few days 
     19after their wedding and she does not know 
     20how a woman in her situation can cope with 
     21her tender feelings for a kind local teacher. Her 
     22friend Sonia provides a graphic example of a 
     23woman desperately torn between modernity 
     24and traditional notions of female virtue, while 
     25Aunt Nila has difficulty facing up to the ageing 
     26process. The film tells its tale by way of 
     27meditative sequence shots and framings which 
     28constantly remind viewers of the conflictual 
     29existence of the forces of life (luscious trees, 
     30plants and other signs of irrepressible life) with 
     31the dry, decaying monuments of an outdated 
     32but still suffocatingly dominant premodern 
     33society, its oppressiveness as well as its 
     34achievements graphically represented by the 
     35ever-present temple spires.
