Tapan Sinha – Nirjan Saikate AKA The Desolute Beach (1963)

A writer meets five widows on a train to Puri, one of them played by Sharmila Tagore. As the six lives begin to intertwine, the taboos of widowhood emerge; but so, too, does a philosophy of life and hope for the future. The performers collectively won Best Actress at India’s National Film Awards in 1964. Director Tapan Sinha creates another great film of novelistic complexity.

This movie is way ahead of it’s time in depicting society’s attitudes towards widows in India, who were confined to their homes and could never re-marry.

This movie is an adaptation of the novel with the same name by eminent Bengali
writer Samaresh Basu, who wrote this travelogue under his pen name ‘Kalkut’.
