A MOVIE OF ENCOURAGEMENT,INSPIRATION AND INDEPENDENCY OF A SINGLE WOMAN'S SURVIVAL IN THE MALE DOMINATED SOCIETY
½ May 21, 2010
Beautiful film that details the stigma of a divorcee for an Indian woman, her struggles and humiliations, and the strength and courage required to fight and conquer. An inspirational film, the movie shows how Smita Patil's character, simply on the basis of her own merits and fortitude, is able to start life again from scratch, begin a career, achieve success and respect, and above all, create her own identity all through her diligence and hard work. Songs have wonderful lyrics. Smita Patil is amazing as is Tina Munim. Rajesh Khanna is also great.

Just Smita Patil in the movie is a reason to watch the movie. This movie was made in the era when women were trying to make an independent identity for themselves (in India), one separate from their husbands/family. The movie is mainly about Smita Patil's character and how even after having a taboo of a woman abandoned by her husband for her own step-sister, she strives to make a mark for herself in the world. The friendship between her and Rajesh Khanna is exquisitely handled. Her struggle, finding her inner strenght while fighting against thoughts of suicide and society humiliations, is so well portrayed by Smita Patil. Does get a little dramatic and exaggerated at times but considering it is 1980s Indian cinema, that is not a surprise. Also has songs with inspirational lyrics.
