Storyline

As Pandit Shyam Sunder prayed in Bhagwan Shivji's temple on the occasion of Janamashtami, his wife gives birth to a daughter, Rupa, and passes away, leaving her child to bear the brunt of being an ill-omen. Years later, Rupa burns her face from a frying pot, thus disfiguring the right side of her face completely, so much so that when she matures, the scar being so hideous, that no one in the village nor surrounding area wants to marry her. Then an Engineer named Rajeev arrives from Bombay, he approaches Shyam Sunder to seek his permission and blessings, so that he can marry Rupa. Protesting strongly, Rupa is asked to marry Rajeev and re-locate to his house. When Rajeev finds out that his wife is disfigured, he refuses to have to do anything with her. Then one day when he returns from a trip out of town, he is told that Rupa is expecting his child. Watch what impact this has on Rajiv and what he does to expose Rupa in the community.

Stayam Shivam Sundaram
14 March 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie was at the cutting edge of Indian cinema.It dealt with a theme which is probably all to common in India's villages and semi-urban areas.Butwhat it brings out is that the same man is attracted greatly to a woman and repelled by her just because of one body disfigurement.

The story pulls at the heartstrings and really brings across the travail of any young woman,should she be disfigured.Zeenat Aman really shinesin this story.The glamour girl of the 70's dons the garb of a disfigured girl and performs with absolute panache.This ,added on to Don really did make 1978 Zeenat's year.Shashi Kapoor is good but not exceptional The depiction of the flood and how human beings are prepared to run roughshod over one another when danger looms is enlightening.
