Amodini, the only child of a rich zamindar (landlord), is to be married
to the son of a rival zamindar. But to avenge family rivalry, the groom
does not turn up at the marriage. To save Amodini from becoming 'Lognabhrastha'
(stigmatized), she is married to Pundu, a young servant in the house. Amodini
swears not to let him enter either her room or her life.
A humiliated Pundu goes to Calcutta and makes a fortune. Pundu now refuses to accept Amodini. It is Amodini's turn to feel humiliated and she goes to Pundu's house one day and beats Rashmoni, Pundu's second wife. But things change very soon. Pundu is surprised to see Amodini and Rashmoni embracing each other.
Chidanand Dasgupta was the founder of the Calcutta Film Society along with Satyajit Ray in 1947, and has made several documentaries and feature films. Amodini won the National Award for the Best Bengali Film in 1985.
