Savitri a middle-aged woman, is dissatisfied with her circumstances. An unemployed son, a promiscuous teenage daughter and above all a husband who has failed to provide her emotional and financial security. She seeks to fulfil herself in relationships outside marriage, only to realise that men are the same beneath different faces.
A powerful and searingly truthful look at marriage, the play explores the themes of fragmentation and incompleteness at the individual, familial and social levels.
What makes Mohan Rakesh’s portrait of Savitri (one of Hindi theatre’s first feminist icons)so gripping, is that one is never sure whether he admires her rage to get a grip on her life, or whether he suggests that she is a woman caught in her destiny and circumstances in the manner of a tragic Greek heroine.
