Kumar Shahani on the film: "The triangular division, taken from Tantrik abstraction, is the key to the understanding of this complex film. The inverted triangle represents the Indian tradition, fertility and the femininity principle. The breaking up of society is visualized as a three-way division of womanhood. The three principle woman [sic.] characters embody the traditional aspects of feminine power."
Every moviegoer suspects that there are, in the great Out There, hidden masterpieces in the national cinema's of any number of countries waiting to be discovered. This film (available on DVD) is proof that this suspicion is no pipe dream.
