During one of the many violent uprisings against the English colonial overlords in India, a church filled with people is massacred. The only people to survive are three generations of women in one family, hidden by a friendly Indian. They are then kidnapped by a Muslim (Sashi Kapoor), who wants to keep the youngest woman as his second wife, despite the objections of his first wife who despises the women for their Englishness. Also, the girl he is enamored of finds him frightening. He goes off to join the fighting and eventually comes back to a much-changed situation. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie GuideA different perspective comes through with mostly a Islamic flavour of the film instead of mostly Hindu or mixed. Supposedly based on a true story but I am sure with much storytelling involved. It reminded me a lot of the films from Afghanistan with such displays of violence than most Indian Films that have more of a feel of Victim-hood with of course my favourite being Mother India.
