Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar - thats what this movie is about. Its their charisma, their chemistry, their presence which will captivate you. The movie itself has a pretty run of the mill story line. Man loses memory, woman nurses him back, man loses recent memory, woman's love survives the obstacles to win him back. There is nothing else special about this movie. I'm surprised it won awards. I'm guessing it was primarily due to everyone being starstruck. Uttam Kumar looks great. He's the only male sex symbol from Bengal I know of. His face, structure, demeanor, grace and vulnerability are irresistible. Suchitra Sen is a classical Indian beauty. More said about her beauty, the less.
