Sundari - The film, a complex human

Everyday news of killing of lonely
aged people featuring at the newspaper has become a common sight . The
problem has become acute in a society where ties of family, cast and kinship
have not remained that strong. With the changing situation, the problem of
the aged in all its multifarious dimensions has raised its ugly head in the
country. This brought Gulbahar Singh's attention to the problem of the aged.

tiny element in this story influenced me to elaborate it into my story "Abaidha
- The Demolition Man" where the protagonist of the story eventually finds
himself in the same situation as displaced when he discovers his wife
is having affair with another man. He considers this possession of his wife
as illegal and leaves her for good. This is a Sunrise Media and Effects Pvt.
Ltd. production. Cast - Chiranjit, Debasree Roy, Rajit Kapoor, Sumitra
Mukherjee, Dulal Lahiri, Monu Mukherjee, Manjusree, Chandan Sen, Joy
Sengupta & others.
