An idle mind is the devil's workshop
5 June 2019 | by rtoac1See all my reviews

This is a Hindi film from the year 1975 starring Vidya Sinha.

To me the message of this film is: An idle mind is a devil's workshop.

The writer himself might have wanted to convey a take on fragility of human relationships.

But the way it's been directed or screen-played is how stories are written in women's magazines: roving thoughts and changing minds, saying something and thinking something else.

You feel unconvinced about the truth of film ending given the character's confused heart. Who knows if the erstwhile lover comes back to her life, she'd again see limitations in her would-be.

The songs are great and the view of Mumbai and middle class life in the 70's is nostalgic.
