Mother-daughter relationship dexterously explored by the maverick director
24 December 2004 | by (Kolkata,India) – See all my reviews

Sarojini(Aparna Sen) is a famous dancer whose profound dedication to the dance-floor causes the widening of a cleavage between her daughter and herself following death of her husband. Is she happy with her career and success? Has she found a substitute in the character of Dipankar De?

Aditi(Deboshree Roy) is a young doctor making all possible preparations to build a home away from her celebrity dancer-mother. She is convinced that Sarojini has forgotten all about her father since he died about 20 years ago. Correct isn't she? In this world her mother is wrong and her father was wronged. Will this ICE ever break? The film starts in the morning and ends the following morning.The film starts on 19th April. 19th April- the day when Aditi's father and Sarojini's husband died.
