अंकुर | The Seedling

Shyam Benegal India, 1974

Alex's rating of the film Ankur

It felt like everyone in this film was on a slow burn, especially the two central characters. As a result, I found it very satisfying when all of the emotions burst forth at the end. The characters' complexity and the class war simmering just below the surface deepened and broadened a deceptively simple tale of infidelity.
