This film is exploring the dual themes of friendship and loneliness. Sanaka and Paromita are mother and daughter-in-law who, despite differences in age, backgrounds and temperaments, build a strong bond together. But when Paromita's marriage to Sanaka's son breaks down, social mores prevent the women from remaining close friends. While Paromita remarries and begins a new life, her mother-in-law , Sanaka , is left heartbroken and alone and eventually falls seriously ill. When Paromita learns of her friend's deterioration, she is compelled to flout convention, and returns to nurse Sanaka on her deathbed. Written by
Very insightful screenplay and soulful acting. Both protagonists are very strong and compassionate females, and the movie is essentially about their bonding. It is difficult not to empathize with them. Their similarity of situations brings them together in the first place and from there on the writer does a great job of showing us how they slowly become friends on some level. She also does a very commendable job of highlighting how in India we mercilessly classify the mentally-underprivileged as "pagol". The supporting cast is spot on, and not one dialog in this movie is overdone or unnecessary. I gave it a 9 because the lives of these two women felt so overwhelmingly sad at times.
