A saga of unmanly lovers

A saga of unmanly lovers

Postby manikjethu on Wed Apr 23, 2008 2:25 pm

As the name [i]KAPURUSH ([/i]The Coward) suggests, the hero(!!!) Amitabha Roy could never gather enough courage to marry his girl-friend Karuna even though she implores him, on the ground that he did not have a job. He, evidently, was not man enough.
When he gets to meet her after many years, she is a married woman, her husband a manager of a sprawling tea estate in north Bengal. He acts unmanly again : he asks her to abandon her husband and go away with him. He is confident that the culturally-inclined Karuna could never be happy with a status-conscious tycoon with a fondness for liquor. May be this was the reality of the helpless jobless youth that the command economy produced, but unmanly nevertheless.
MAHAPURUSH apparently is about the busting of a fraudulent guru (Birinchi Baba). But then there was Satyaranjan, a young lad in his mid-twenties (though not jobless) in love with Buchki, a rich man's daughter with come-hither eyes. Buchki doesn't think much about Satya and treats him accordingly. Alarmed by the prospect of Birinchi administering baptism to Buchki along with her father--in which case she would be compelled to remain unmarried--Satya seeks the help of his friends to liberate her from the clutches of her father and the guru. By any stretch of imagination, an unmanly course of action.
