When I saw this movie for the first time, I was surfing through channels, and one particularly melodious song by Lata Mangeshkar caught my attention. I went on to see the remainder of the movie, and was pretty impressed by the ending.
Next, when I saw this movie being advertised to be shown on a forthcoming weekend, I made it a point to watch it. And I did. And I was swept away !! A very unusual film, since Bengali films made in that era were different. Essentially a romantic story, the movie has a sad, almost far-away effect that takes the viewer with it to a height of pathos. Brilliant performances by the evergreen Uttam Kumar, and Aparna Sen hog the limelight; short but effective side roles played by Konika Majumdar(Teen Kanya, Basanta Bilap), Tarun Kumar and Subrataa add the necessary lights-and-shades to the story. Only Nirmal Kumar's role seems a little loud and melodramatic.
All in all, a fantastic romantic tragedy, which have been missed by many.
