अंकुर | The Seedling

Shyam Benegal India, 1974

Sachin Chavan's rating of the film Ankur

Deserved five stars - except for the single expression, single tone acting of the male lead. Shabana shows in her debut what a caliber she had - heads and shoulders above the rest of the cast - subtle as well as expressive where needed. The village/plantation environment and cultural milieu is captured extremely well. Human nature and relationships handled adeptly.
