     17feature, shot on 16mm with non-professional 
     18actors in Puri, a small coastal town in Orissa. 
     19The plot concerns the break-up of a middleclass 
     20extended family. The former freedom 
     21fighter Raj Kishore (Satpathy), now an elderly 
     22school headmaster, lives with his four sons and 
     23only daughter. The eldest son Tuku (Mishra) 
     24and his wife Prabha (Manaswini) are expected 
     25to help pay for the education of the younger 
     26siblings while the second son Tutu (Mahapatra) 
     27marries a well-off woman (Sujata) who insists 
     28on a separate household. In the end, Tuku 
     29refuses to keep shouldering the burdens of the 
     30extended family and the unit disintegrates. The 
     31director, a noted teacher and writer of film 
     32theory, acknowledges the influence of Yasujiro 
     33Ozu’s editing style.
