Meeta Sen (Tanuja) and Amar Sen (Sanjeev Kumar) have been married for several years. Due to Amar's hectic work schedule, the couple have not had children, as there was no time for intimacy. Meeta decides to take matters into her own hands, gets rid of the servants, save for Hari (A.K. Hangal), and decides to run the household on her own. This gets the couple to be closer, and eventually they do get intimate. And then Meeta's old flame Shashi Bhushan (Dinesh Thakur) not only re-enters Meeta's life, but also gets employed in the same organization as Amar, throwing their marriage again in jeopardy.

An excellent insight into man-woman relationship
1 February 2002 | by (Mumbai India) – See all my reviews

This is the first of Basu Chaterjee's trilogy on a husband-wife relationship. It tells the story of a middle class woman played by Tanuja who marries a rich man played by Sanjeev Kumar. He is a workholic husband who is interested in money and his career. He has no time for her. One day her old boy-friend (Dinesh Thakur) comes to town and gets a job as her husbands secretary. This makes her uncomfortable. She feels that because her husband is ignoring her she might get attracted to her old boy-friend again. When the fact that Dinesh is here old boy friend comes to light there is a rift between Sanjeev and Tanuja. But Dinesh quits the job and leaves thier lives. Sanjeev realises he must not ignore his wife.

What I like about the movie is the ending scene. The movie ends with the last radio announcement for the day

On the flipside the movie is rather complex to understand. Some of the dialouges are too complicated to comprehend.

Overall it is one of the finest film of Bhattacharya. It had won the best story award in 1972
