Storyline

Professionally qualified as a lawyer, Somen lives a wealthy lifestyle with his mom, Parvati, and dad, Dharam Bhushan, who presides over the town of Shripuri as an upper caste Hindu Priest. During the Dassera fest, Somen meets with village belle, Kajri, and falls in love with her despite of the fact that she is of a much lower caste. After seeking his mom's permission, he goes to bring Kajri to meet her, but finds out that she has left for an unknown destination. Unable to stand his dad's hypocrisy and Bhagwan Shri Ram's temple being misused by Kedar Nath, Somen leaves home to go to the city but is unable to get Kajri out of his mind. A year later he returns home to the same fest, but is still unable to locate Kajri. When his dad insists that he marry Kedar's daughter, Somen not only refuses but leaves home to go and stay with his paternal uncle, Nandlal, who runs a Dairy farm. This is where he meets with Kajri and both rekindle their romance. Somen returns home, convinces his mom ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Bloody adaptation of Hardy's Tess
8 June 2004 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

Tess of the D'Urbervilles transitioned to Indian countryside. Regrettably, the film lacks much of the subtle and pastoral flavor or any notable depth. The villain is such a disgusting-looking guy that audience cannot help cursing the director for his brutality. After the shock, now I understand the golden rule for most Indian films that the heroine should never be raped. One can hardly have any sympathy in Somen as he/she would have to Angel Clare, either. The bloody ending scene makes one wonder whether Indians are violent people who like to seek law by their own hands.

6/10: solely for Madhuri Dixit's shinning beauty and marvelous dancing.
