Where did you watch this movie?

Ajit and Rajoo become orphans. Ajit, as the older brother takes care of his younger sister, at great personal sacrifice. When he tries to save his sister from sexual assault, death occurs. Is Ajit responsible? He emerges as Vinod from jail. In English the loose translation of the title would be "a silken thread" a compact translation would be a "silken skein". Ajit, and his little sister are separated by powers that neither he or she understand. Resham ki dori - is the thread that brings them back together. This is a story of three generations of arrogance of wealth. It is also a story of great wealth, dishonest managers, anger, arrogance in semi- feudal India. In a social context, it is a story of the death of the textile industry in Parel, Lower Parel in Bombay. It is a story of the exploitation of labour. Some scenes of labour poverty is gut wrenching. It is a vision of a person who could reverse the process of attrition in the textile industry, if only till the textile mill was set on fire for insurance.
