Anu was releases in 1998 in Calcutta. This is one the bengali film that I watched in the movie hall. A classic movie directed by Shatarupa Sanyal. She also wrote the story, did the music direction in the film too. The story revolves around a girl “Anu” (Indrani Haldar) and her fight against society. While she was able to save Nirmalya, an activist, but she was raped by wrong people looking for the”leader” Nirmalya. Her husband was locked up in jail for his activities under a social group. Anu was able to save her husband but could not save herself from social stigma of being raped. However, she was very open minded and thought that at least her husband should not have any problem in future. After long time, her husband was released from jail and come to stay with Indrani Haldar again. He could not stand the fact that his wife was once raped! A classic film that will portray the social status of women in Bengal Society very well. A must watch film for all.

  1. anu is a marvelous feminist film that portrays the real female world and how much suppressed it really is. besides the hypocrite male character in the film was not free from the patriarchal chauvinism,if its correct to say here,although its not a general case;anu herself remains and retains in her the devotion that we expect 50 years back. even then the fact of the film will remain valid.
