Storyline

Shyama is an orphaned young woman who lives with her aunt, uncle and several cousins, two of who are girls of marriageable age. Her passion is dancing, which is frowned upon by her uncle and aunt. One day she, along with a young man named Gopal, go to see the dance by an international artiste named Veena. They ask Veena and her mentor, Dinanath, for help but are shunned and asked to leave. Crestfallen, she returns home and sleeps outside the door as it was very late. The next day her aunt finds out about her overnight excursion and beats her up severely, followed by another beating by her uncle. Humiliated, she decides to run away with Gopal to another town in order to learn dancing at the hands of well-known Guru Kishinchand Sharma. They do find Kishin, who initially rejects them, but relents when he witnesses Shyama abilities. He decides to be her mentor and in this manner Shyama excels in her talents, so much so that she is asked to perform on stage in a competition with none other...

The climax is a beautiful sequence of dances.
28 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last sequence of dances is simply gorgeous. It is a competition between two dancers, one much senior to the other. They dance first in Odissi style, then in Kathak, and finally in a UP- village style.The junior artiste wins, not surprisingly.

Simple songs accompany the Odissi and the Kathak styles, but the words are profound. See the movie again and again for the last 15 minutes.

This sequence also reminds me of a competition between two dancers in Mughal-e-Azam.
