Saptapadi is one of the greatest love story ever produced in India.
8 September 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Saptapadi is one of the greatest love story ever produced in India. All the actors and actress gave their careers best performance in this movie like Uttam Kumar, Suchitra Sen, Chhabi Biswas, Chhaya Devi, Pahadi Sanyal and last but not the least Tarun Kumar. Set in World War II, the reverend Krishnendu (Uttam Kumar) runs a military hospital in Bankura. A drunken Anglo-Indian woman soldier is brought to him for treatment and he recognized her as his former love Rina Brown (Suchitra Sen). The two of them were fellow medical students. Rina's father agrees to the match providing Krishnendu converts to Christianity. Krishnendu's orthodox fathervisits Rina and tells her he will never accept this marriage and pleads with Rina to let Krishnendu go. Rina sacrifices her love even as Krishnendu converts to Christianity. Ultimately the lovers are united in the midst of the war. The film, based on a story by Tarashankar Banerjee, is undoubtedly one of the most memorable films of the magical Uttam - Suchitra combination.
