At the very outset, we are greeted with the sublime radiance of Paroma: the way she keeps the clock at her in-laws ticking is a treat to watch.

The sprouting up of the clandestine amour & it's being watered at an increasing frequency does Paroma in at last. Aparna Sen's direction here, as in 'Mr & Mrs Iyer', is so true & exemplary.

We must not forget Aparna's skill in forging up such a moving story & turning it into a plausible script.
