The story of two women
28 September 2009 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Riruporno Ghosh is a brilliant director. The cinematography and the story are well built. Aparna Sen is awesome in her role.Both the personality of a dancer and the love of a mother are perfectly bloomed in the character of Sarojini. Debashree Roy is just great in the role of Aditi.I am a great fan of her. Her performance in this movie is one of best. The dialogs between mom and daughter are also well built.

The complexity of the relationship between mom and daughter is tremendously picturized.The complexity between Sarojini and her late husband is actually the picture of our society. The jealousy a husband to his famous wife is very common. The same thing in the case of accepting Aditi by her lover as wife because she is a daughter of a dancer.The ending is just perfect.
