SPIC-MACAY is screening the movie Bhoomika as a part of its annual cultural fest Virasaat 2009, on 24th September. The movie will begin at 8:30pm.

Bhumika is a 1977 Indian movie directed by the versatile director Shyam Benegal. The movie stars Smita Patil, Amol Palekar, Anant Nag, Naseeruddin Shah and Amrish Puri.

This film is broadly based on the memoirs of a Marathi stage and screen actress of the 1940s, Hansa Wadkar, who led a flamboyant and unconventional life. The story focuses on her search for identity and self-fulfillment

The film won 2 National Film Awards and a Filmfare Best Movie Award. It was also invited to Carthage Film Festival 1978, Chicago Film Festival (where it was awarded the Golden Plaque 1978), and in 1986 it was invited to the Festival Of Images, Algeria.

Bhoomika tells the life story of a Bollywood actress, Usha (Smita Patil), who is the granddaughter of a famous old-tradition female singer. Usha's mother is married to an abusive and alcoholic Brahmin. Following his early death, despite her mother’s objections, Usha is taken to Bombay by a family friend, Keshav Darvi (Amol Palekar), to successfully audition as a singer in a Bombay studio: the first step in a process, watched approvingly by her doting grandmother and with horror by her mother, that will eventually carry her to on-camera adolescent stardom, and to an ill-fated love marriage with Keshav.

Usha stubbornly pursues this relationship (culminating in a pre-marital pregnancy) with the much older Keshav, who had been lusting after her since childhood. She feels indebted to him for his loyalty to her family (of which he frequently reminds her) and for her own worldly success. However, she is also a headstrong girl who clearly enjoys her acting career, and is bent on challenging her uptight mother (who opposes the match because of Keshav’s non-Brahmin status, just as she opposes the cinema itself on the grounds of its supposed disrespectability).

Naseeruddin Shah and Anant Nag play significant roles based on the film industry, and Amrish Puri plays the role of a businessman, in this film.
