STARRING –Vaijayanthi Mala, Balraj Sahni, & Kamala Laxman
Are we all puppets in the hands of Fate? Have we no free will? Are we all the victims of circumstance? There are big questions & let’s leave them to metaphysicians.
Pushpa (Vaijayanthi Mala), a sweet young girl, lived to love inanimate puppets spring to life at the hands of the handsome puppeteer Shivraj (Kamala Laxman). But the hand that made puppets dance & Jump, skid & fight, make love & romance, got crippled in an accident. Shivraj shed silent tears & Pushpa cried. Her pity turned to love & she found a new life surge in hr. She loved to dance & sing in her new found joy. Her devotion to her love symbolized in her dance did not go un-noticed by the famous impresario Loknath (Balraj Sahni). She found herself on the stage & soon after that in the lime light.
She married Shivraj, made a small happy home for him & bore him a child. But Shivraj didn’t enjoy his life in the back-seat of Pushpa’s drive to fame. He found fault with her for no reason & saw red where it didn’t exist. His feeling of humiliation gave way to jealousy & frustration.
Her little hopes, her found love, her child were all beyond her reach now. But Loknath, the man who brought her into limelight, helped her find Shivraj & her child. Shivraj refused to come back to her. On the stage it was never the same again. Everything had changed. That’s how she felt.
Perhaps they were all victims of circumstances; Pushpa, Shivraj, the little child & Loknath. So are we-but do our circumstances makes us helpless while facing the situation that Pushpa had before her or Shivraj! Does Loknath’s struggle to find a solution in bringing joy where there were tears, hope in despair, light in darkness? See Kathputli & Find out for yourself.
