Paranjpye’s first full-scale art-house feature tells a love story set among the blind. The blind Anirudh Parmar (Shah) runs a school for blind children and is particularly touchy about the notion that the children might be perceived as less than self-sufficient. Kavita (Azmi), who takes up charitable causes after the death of her husband, becomes involved with the school and falls in love with Anirudh. They are to marry, but Anirudh cannot get rid of the suspicion that she is doing it out of pity. This humanist though sentimental story was commended by reviewers for the performances of the children and the several comic moments that enlivened the script.
