Poignant political melodrama in context of the decline of the Naxalite movement in Calcutta and, following a massive State crackdown, its withdrawal to Bihar. Samiran (A. Chakraborty) is separated from his wife Pritha (Majumdar) when he, along with several CPI(ML) activists, is sentenced to life imprisonment. He enjoins his wife to remarry in the interests of their child’s security. When he is released following a change in government, he finds that his colleague has become a rich industrialist, but Pritha, who did not remarry, has continued her struggle as a Communist leader in Bihar. A muted and, by Chakraborty’s former standards, more self-consciously melodramatic work, the film has a fine performance by Sreela Majumdar.
