Synopsis:
Set in the mid '50s, Ray's often humorous story of conflicting social values in India's lower-middle class stars Madhabi Mukherjee as housewife Arati Mazumdar. Finding it difficult to make ends meet on her husband's salary alone, Arati takes up a job as a sales woman and finds that she revels in her new-found freedom. But Arati's independence and burgeoning confidence alarms her traditionalist family and threaten to throw her life into chaos.

highly intelligent social commentary - Mahanagar review by KR

Spoiler Alert

Set in Calcutta in the 1950's this brilliant film is as relevant now as it was in '63 when it was made.
