| What a movie !!
Another great movie from Basu Bhattaharya. This movie propounds the Indian thought that the place of a wife is in her husband's home and her happiness lies in remaining happy with her man whatever the past may hold.

Saudamini, played by Shabana, is in love with Narendra (Vikram) but is married off to Ghanshyam (Girish Karnad). She remains unhappy in her husband's home as her heart is still with Narendra. Narendra also wants her to come with him and she even agrees to to it. The film deals with this rather controversial theme very sensitively.

The music is superb with a only a few but very good songs. "Ka Karoon Sajni (What should I do My Friend)" and "Pal Bhar Mein Yeh Kya Ho Gaya (What has this happened within the moment)" take the cake.

The cast guarantees excellent portrayal of all characters. Even Vikram manages to pull off a good performance. Dheeraj Kumar is delightful in a lovable cameo.

Watch this movie and you will be compelled to think twice about what happiness and content in a married life means.
