Rating: Not Rated
Studio: Eagle Video
Running Time: 140 min.

The action occurs in 1905, in the period in which Great Britain, represented by Lord Curzon, decided the partition of Bengal in order to separate the Hindus and Moslems. The populace mobilized against this project in the nationalist movement known as swadeshi, which called for a boycott of foreign made goods, and in an insurrection which was subsequently suppressed. In this turbulent context, a bourgeois couple, Nikhil and Bimala, who have remained faithful to the ideals of the Bengal Renaissance, receive in their home a friend, Sandip, a vehement anti-English nationalist. Encouraged by her husband to be a "modern" woman, Bimala is seduced by Sandip, before gradually recognizing the duplicity of his motives and behavior.

Please note: This film is in Bengali with NO English subtitles.
