Review
A stirring and emotionally dramatic epic revolving around the ideal of the Hindu mother figure. The defiant heroine battles famine, flood, a fiendish moneylender and sundry tragic accidents in the ceaseless struggle to raise her sons and retain the family's few acres. Perhaps THE classic early Bollywood and representing a male dominated world that succeeds in being considerably more positive in its depiction of women than beliefs at the time might lead you to expect.
