This is a black and white film about a family of siblings and a mom whose husband left, leaving only the eldest sister Kavitha to work and provide for them. The family is mostly unambitious, with the brother, who has children and also lives in the house with the wife and the kids, and sisters who do not work. Kavitha has a boyfriend who wants to marry her, but she can't since she is still providing for the family. Kavitha is feared/not liked by the family since she is so serious, but there is also a sweet side to her, which she does not show often. Kamal Hassan, who has since become a big star in films in India, is in a co-starring role and he provides a bit of comic relief.The actress who plays Kavitha (I am not sure, I think it is Sujatha, no other names are given) is good in a fairly challenging role. She is an exotic beauty, tough as nails but ultimately fair. The film is over two hours, thirty minutes long, but it is good. Not for everyone, but a fairly good melodrama.
