On the 7th of this month, my husband and I got blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Yes! I'm a proud mother now, to my doll-faced bundle of joy. And yes, he's kept me on my toes ever since his arrival. Though all he does is eat, sleep, pee and poop, yet somehow not a moment passes everyday when I'm not staring at his face. Yes, he's occupying my entire life now!!
I've named him Dingding. And occasionally I call him things such as White Kitten, Chini and Shona. We are yet to christen him. I'm still searching for a unique name that starts with S. Yes, I want my son to have the same initials as his mother :)
Suggestions are welcome...
Kapurush is the serious foil to Mahapurush. While Mahapurush is an ovation to the gall and charisma of a cunning man, a man who will not crumble under pressure, Kapurush throws light on the meekness of a man who doesn't have the mental strength to rise up to the occasion on any count. There are situations when fate gives him a chance to deliver, but he never can cough up enough courage to stand up and deliver. It is a love story gone wrong, a tale of a woman's belief and trust unrequitted and it is a strange case of three individuals brought under one roof that brings forth the true traits of these characters.
Kapurush, made in 1965, starts with Amitabha Roy (Soumitra Chatterjee) stranded on the roads of North Bengal. He is a Calcutta-based scriptwriter in the process of collecting material for his new film. But on the event of his car breaking down, he is looking for help, which arrives in the form of Bimal Gupta (Haradhan Bandopadhyay), the manager of a tea estate. Gupta offers Roy hospitality for the night, which Roy accepts because he has no other alternative.
When the men reach Gupta's bungalow, Roy is shocked to meet Gupta's wife. He recognises Karuna (Madhabi Mukherjee) to be the girl he had once let down. She has relied on him once and loved him dearly. She was ready to fight her family who disapproved of her relation with him. But Amitabha despite loving her, had disappointed her royally.
Amitabha manages to steal a few moments with Karuna, whereby he tells her that he still loves her and is repenting his past deeds. He tells Karuna that if she is ready he is eager to take her away from her husband. He tells her that he realises that what he did before was wrong and is dying to rejigg his deeds. But can Karuna now trust Amitabha? Can she rest her faith on the man who let her down in such a big way at a time when she most needed him?
