अंकुर | The Seedling

Shyam Benegal India, 1974

Viswanathan's rating of the film Ankur

Ankur - The Seedling. A woman who nurtures every man when he is most vulnerable is forced to face a society where her own independence is crippled. The story captures all layers of such prejudice. It's unfortunately relevant even now! Caste is a man's game, a woman is a woman no matter what label she carries. The cultures have imbibed the conservative aspects to its roots. Will it ever end?!
