"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

Basu Bhattacharya’s sensitive movie about a housewife and her desperate ways to get out of the middle class pattern of life is wrongly remembered for its few intense love scenes of Rekha. The senseless controversy took away all the attention and the real meaning of the theme got lost in those few unimportant scenes. Otherwise, it was Basu Bhattacharya’s last important addition to his artistic movies repertoire based on Marital Dissatisfaction and its various stages.

 “Aastha” had its main focus on how a simple and loyal housewife gets attracted towards an easy money earning offer which in turn introduces her to the prostitution trade. However, after only a few steps into it, she realizes her mistake, regrets it and returns back to a normal life with her professor husband and their small kid.
The theme is highly inspired from world famous French director Jean-Luc Godard’s 1967 released movie called 2 Ou 3 Choses Que Je Sais D’elle” in French or “Two or Three Things I Know About Her” in English. Godard’s movie also revolved around the life of a lady living in Paris who falls down to the easy option of prostitution in order to meet the demanding urges of her life.

But undoubtedly Basu Bhattacharya came up with his own unique version of the theme, depicting the problem with more Indianised warmth and affection.
