Pinjar is saga of human strength during trying times. A saga, that is far from being the story of victims. The film actually interrogates not only but how we know it. Pinjar is the strength and hope that epitomizes the way many people responded to the brutal past. Based on novel by the veteran writer Amrita Pritam, the film Pinjar takes history into an unexplored sphere. The film is the metaphorical representation of the partition. The story of the division of lives seen and experienced by a young woman, Puro. Where we know of the recorded facts in the history, Pinjar revisits the spirit of that time. The desire to live, to combat the circumstances, the will to change the world and suffering for anyone untouched by the mayhem. Puro is the symbol of undaunted strength and determination. Like Puro, the women's struggle during this time was through silence which eventually transformed in to the silent movement where the Puro's refused to become helpless victims to the crossfire of polity. Puro like many other women during that time had dreams and desires. She too loved life and was content with the small pleasures that come with it. And one incident in her life saw her staring in the face of death. A slow death which was forcing her to survive, like a skeleton. Till, she derived inspired inspiration and reason to live, because she could not see the plight of other women around her. Puro's mission and inner strength are very poignant nuances the film hi lights. While there were wide spread riots, there were people who still hoped in love and harmony to survive and were waiting for their dreams to come true. Puro's undaunted spirit and love broke the shackles of mayhem and misery.
