Since song and dance numbers are a very important part of commercial Indian films, there are many professional singers who specialize in playing back (dubbing) their singing voice on to motion pictures. Especially famous are two sisters who reportedly cover 80% of all female songs. Director Sai Paranjpye based her film on the story of these legendary sisters. The film skillfully weaves the recollection of the main character, the younger sister Bansi (gracefully played by Shammbana Azmi of international acclaim), as it reveals how a woman restores her lost identity. The plot is melodramatic, and the film is shot in the genre of Bollywood (Bombay Hollywood) entertainment films except for the fact that Sai Paranjpye brings a female variation to that genre. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi
