Poignant yet StrongThe story is set in a village resembling the present day district of North Canara. It revolves around the strict Brahminical order of the village and how it affects the characters- The Udupi Pandit, his widowed daughter, the students of the gurukul, the shudra and various others. The film explores theme of salvation, renunciation and religious bigotry.

Oddly appropriate.Even though this film was made 21 years ago, it is oddly appropriate for our times. Especially when Amir Khan's "Satyamev Jayate" has raised the issue of foeticide in the public consciousness. Even though the main issue is of Brahmanical obduracy and the heaping of judgement on women, foeticide is also relevant. Good strong acting and direction give the film a depth and cause that might have been lost.
