Dostoevsky-inspired drama set in 1900s Prague about a bored arrogant playboy who spends time seducing other men's wives and dueling. He begins an affair with his friend's wife, but falls in love with her. She becomes pregnant. Is it his?
The film is a funny, sad, satirical, serious, compassionate, wicked revelation of the follies and foibles of a society that considers the birth of a girl, "a curse", where abuse by the husband is taken for granted, and a woman's worth is judged by three factors alone-- that she be married by the age of 25, that she should amply satisfy the monetary demands of her in-laws and that she produce a male heir within a year of holy matrimony! Jaya (Neha Dubey) is a 21-year-old bullied into auditioning for various male suitors and their families, while fending off the advances of the arrogant jerk next door. Meanwhile, Uma (Rajeshwari Sachdev), her 30- year-old aunt, whose asthma has made her unable to find a husband, falls for a visiting Brit (William Randall), to the matriarch's dismay. Performers and technical credits are no more than adequate.
