     12Melodrama about two old Parsee friends, the 
     13extrovert Pesi (A. Kher) and the shy Piroj 
     14(Shah), both in love with Jeroo (Azmi). Pesi 
     15marries Jeroo and also draws close to the 
     16widowed lawyer Soona (K. Kher). Piroj is 
     17transferred away from Bombay for five years 
     18and returns to find Jeroo had a miscarriage and 
     19that Pesi now prefers Soona’s company. When 
     20Pesi dies, his funeral is paid for by Soona who 
     21has borne him a son. Based on a short story by 
     22Karanjia written in the early 50s, the film is set 
     23among the Bombay Parsees. The acting, 
     24speech, decor and much of the storyline 
     25adheres to popular perceptions of a community 
     26often caricatured as idiosyncratic. The film 
     27often slips into flashbacks, usually from Piroj’s 
     28point of view.
