Storyline

Monish Rai comes from a wealthy family, and is in love with Deviyani, who is poor. Monish has to travel abroad to further his education in law, but promises to stay in touch with Deviyani. After his departure, financial problems surround Deviyani and her dad. She approaches Monish's mom for assistance, but is refused. In desperation, her father gets her married to a much older man, who is also alcoholic and frequents courtesans. Deviyani gets pregnant and gives birth to a baby girl, Suparna. Unhappy with her marriage and her circumstances, she runs away. She approaches a nun, Mother Mary, in a monastery and leaves Suparna in her care and disappears forever. When Monish returns he runs into Deviyani, but is told that the person he has seen is a Lucknow based prostitute, Pannabai. Is Deviyani still alive? Who is Pannabai? What happened to Suparna?

A heartbreaking story with splendid performance and direction
12 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mamta (1966) is a remake of the Bengali movie Uttarfalguni (1963). The story is heartbreaking and tells the sacrifice of a mother for her child's upbringing. Suchtitra Sen as both the mother and the daughter played the dual role with perfection. It was so perfect that most of the time you forget that the two women are the same person. Asit Sen who also directed the Bengali version did a commendable job in presenting the story in a very compelling as well as in well restrained manner. The story moves well and as it progresses it gets more interesting. I have seen many Suchitra Sen's movies and I think this is one of best performances. Ashok Kumar as the lawyer, friend and guardian of Suparna, daughter of Devjani gave a splendid performance.
