Storyline

Amar Kumar is an eligible young man, and his parents feel that he should get married. They introduce him to Bishambernath, his wife, and their daughter, Roopa. Amar also gets to meet Roopa's cousin, Shobha, who is treated like a servant in their house, and is attracted to her. When Roopa finds out that Amar is showing an interest in Shobha, she physically slaps and beats Shobha senseless. Shobha, afraid of another beating from Roopa, keeps away from Amar. Amar has to go abroad for two or three years. He choses not to make any commitment as to marriage until his return. Shortly after he leaves, Roopa and her mom beat up poor Shobha again and have her thrown out. She relates this story to Amar's parents', who feel sorry for her and allow her to live at their house. Things take a turn for the worse for Shobha, when Amar's mom finds out from Roopa's mom, that Shobha had been asked to leave as she is pregnant, with the identity of the father unknown.

A good social family drama
2 February 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie and would like to say that the movie is interesting to watch. The script is good and director Satyen Bose's hard work can be seen by watching the movie. The music is nice although not excellent. The acting is very good. Balraj Sahini is one of my favorite actors and he really suited in the role of a sensible father and doctor. Acting of star cast i.e. Biswajeet and Mala Sinha was also very good. At least watch it for one time if you get a chance. The movie reflects the social status of a woman when she is pregnant without marriage and deep love of a woman who accepts all kind of opposition but does not give any guilt to her beloved. On the other hand, the movie also reflects treatment of a helpless in the society of Sub-Continent.
