This is one of those movies which you can sit back and visualize with your eyes closed, long after the movie has ended. The gist of the story as presented by others is definitely correct, but fails to uphold the craftsmanship displayed by Joya Ahsan, Kaushik Ganguly, Lama and others. The assertiveness and elegance with which Joya plays Padma will coerce the viewer to delve into multiple depths of psychology and the different shades of human character.
A pertinent question, as to why did Padma consummate with the rescued Indian trafficker can have countless explanations; physical beauty being the least likely. A destitute widow, who had given up her soul to protect the memories and everything related to her short-lived marriage, embraces another self-offering for a person she had given a new life to. No one can overlook the vulnerability and the yearn to live, to love, to being loved and respected in the eyes of the protagonist. Nasser Ali was that silly fellow who took refuge in the heart of poor Padma and rekindled her wishes to live again. His naive ways and dependence on Padma was probably one of the reasons she started feeling in love all over again with her married-self, doing the chores out of love and not burdened by duty.
Lastly, when Padma was being taken away on a van-rickshaw by Ganesh Mondal, she was looking stunningly beautiful as well as sad like the idol of Maa Durga on the day of immersion. With the dhak playing in the background, Padma not only sacrificed herself to Ganesh, but called upon herself, her own immersion in Love.
