a beautiful film by the director Shri Sudhendhu Roy
1 August 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful movie based on the short story Samapthi by Tagore.It is a very well directed film with talented performance by Smt. Jaya Bachan who lives in the character meenu. The Bengali actor Swarupdutt also appear wonderful. The location and photography of the film is also great. Special mention has to be made for the melodious music of LP in the film. Iwas actually attracted by the melodious background score of the film by LP. These are the important elements of the film which I liked most. Similar low budget movies are Piya ka Ghar, a Jaya Bachan starrer and Chitchor (Amol Palekar), which were good movies in all respects. It is a pity nowadays those kind of movies are not at all available.
