Movie Info

(1984) The last of three movies celebrating Anupam Kher. Mahesh Bhatt's award- winning film launched the young actor into the spotlight. As Anupam Kher recalls, it was the chance of a lifetime: "It was my first film. I was 27 and it was one of the greatest roles that could have been given to any newcomer. I had to play a 65-year-old man." Anupam Kher plays the role of B.B. Pradhan, a retired headmaster, who has to confront the tragedy of his only son's death in New York, alongside his grieving wife, Parvati. Without their son's income, the couple decide to rent a room but soon find themselves involved in the troubled affairs of their young guest, Sujata (Soni Razdan), with dangerous and far-reaching consequences. Saaransh is distinguished by a moving restraint in its treatment of personal tragedy as well as by an incredible performance of real maturity and emotional depth from the young Anupam Kher. In Hindi with English subtitles. Network Premiere.
