An English translation of filmscript Umbartha, with screenplay by Vijay Tendulkar.

Director Jabbar Patel's film shows a woman growing into independence, and growing beyond the limits so gently and yet so firmly imposed by an apparently liberal and progressive family. A woman's film, it builds its case with scientific precision and economy, in a manner that will move and convince anybody.

Patel's film represents a kind that is not the same as that identified generally with the new Indian cinema, or even the kind that now defined itself as the middle cinema. It tells a straightforward story, uses songs for entertainment, and gets its point across unobtrusively.
