However, she soon realizes that Ramanathan is a sadistic and jealous husband, who tortures her no end so she opts for a divorce. As a divorced woman, with an infant in her hands, she lands in Chennai (Madras) to take up a new job and start a new life. Her life takes a turn for the better in Chennai with a very supportive friend-group in her office, particularly a widower, Janardhan a.k.a ... Written by Anonymous

So-so
28 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film had the reputation of being a radical look at the life of a woman, and I reckon it still enjoys relevance, if not in whole. But K Balachander's approach spoils the party, and what could have been a powerful story of a single mother turns into melodramatic bull. Sujata plays the title role well, but I personally can't stand her. Rajini is terrific and Kamal comes up with a gem of a performance. Watch it to get an idea of the kind of cinema that was lauded as radical in the 70s.
