Ek Je Aachhe Kanya ( The Girl)
Anjan works in advertising and has
recently rented a room in a house in the suburbs of Calcutta.
Eighteen-year-old Ria, who lives there with her grand father, falls
in love with the new tenant. But Anjan already has a long-time
girlfriend Rupa, who works with him in advertising. The rejected
girl tries in vain to win Anjan’s favour. When she sees that her
efforts are futile she starts to make trouble for the couple. At
first her mischief is only minor, but it is followed by more serious
threats to Anjan’s advertising project. And when the couple
announces their engagement the girl becomes so enraged thet she
tries to kill them. A year later Ria is released from a mental
institution because the doctors believe her to be stable. Anjan and
Rupa are married and have moved away. But a new tenant has moved
into grandfather’s house… The film candidly reflects the culture
degradation of the metropolitan environment, of traditional
interpersonal relationships and points to the raising crime rate
among young people.
