Life & Times Of A Woman In The Backdrop Of Freedom Fighting. ♦ 81%
12 June 2013 | by (Economic Capital Of India) – See all my reviews

Bandini is a masterpiece for its cinematography and shrewd plot. While most of us YOLO generation teens would have thought of a rather cheeky climax, Bimal Roy brings us the genuine ending based on 40s' & 50s' India.

It talks about the life of a woman which enters bedlam after she meets a freedom fighter. It talks about how she braves all those hard things life puts in front of her. As the second half starts, the plot increases in pace and the story reaches crescendo revealing shocking points. The last fifteen-minute-part is pure classic which also manages a song.

Performance given out by Nutan & Ashok Kumar is exceptional. Supporting cast and the characters involved are truly magnetic. They will stay with you years.

BOTTOM LINE: A classic not to be missed. 8.1/10.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
