     14After his directorial debut with Ashwathama 
     15(1978), Mohanan had to wait almost a decade 
     16for his 2nd feature to be finished. It tells of an 
     17upper-class widow, Bhadra Vasudev (Mehta), 
     18who, with her son (George), returns to her 
     19dead husband’s village to perform the ritual 
     20that will free her from the turbulent corpse that 
     21seems to persecute her and whose death she 
     22may have caused. The husband was an urban 
     23middle-class executive. The story unfolds from 
     24her son Vineet’s point-of-view as he becomes 
     25progressively estranged from his mother, 
     26ending up throwing sacrificial rice balls at her 
     27and her new friend Ninan (Muttalali). The title 
     28refers to the four purusharthas, the goals of 
     29mankind according to Hindu ethical 
     30philosophy.
