Synopsis

India gained independence in 1947, but for the women, freedom was still a distant dream. It took a long period of struggle for the society to accept remarriage of widows or prevent underage girls from getting married in the first place. Pleas of women to lead a normal life, had no place in a male dominated society. Women were forced to abide by their traditional role, keeping forever mum, without being able to express their feelings, their urges, or love.
