Storyline

Rupa (Zeenat Aman) grew up being cursed as "unlucky" in the village she was born in. Her mother died during childbirth. Then a kitchen accident leaves half her face disfigured. This is an artistic exploration of beauty and disfigurement, society's values and more importantly how a girl, teenager and a bride was treated during the times. Rajeev (Shashi Kapoor) the stereotype male engineer falls in love with the Rupa who has a divine singing voice, and the unscarred left cheek. When he sees the scarred cheek, after marriage, he heads off into a tizzy and continues nightly dalliance with his mistress - the beautiful cheek. Little does he realize that his wife and mistress are two faces of the same person. Written by MG Gopalan

Its fantastic
9 March 2006 | by moviesdownload123See all my reviews

The movie is fantastic guys. The first scene of the movie shows a stone lying there, a voice comes from the backstage saying "What do u think about this thing(stone), a stone??". After that it shows some people coming and offering prayers to it. Now again a sound comes asking" What now?? A God?" There are different ways to interpret any thing lying around u.

The movie literally means Satya- Truth Shivam- Pure Sundaram- Beauty.

At last the girl says" Satya na jana, Shiv ko na mana aur Sundarta na pehchana" That means Couldnot understand truth, Couldn't believe God, And couldn't recognize beauty. What a superb start and end. Its worth watching
