Kamla Ki Maut (Death of Kamla)


Kamla (Roopa Ganguly), a 20-year old girl in love with a young man, is seized by panic when she discovers that she is pregnant. She lives in a one-room flat in a five-storey building teeming with middle class families. Seeing no way out of the problem and overcome by feelings of guilt, she goes to the balcony and jumps down to her death. Neighbours come out to watch the tragedy. Among them are Sudhakar (Pankaj Kapur), his wife, and their two daughters. The incident sets them all thinking and looking into their own secret lives. They come to the nagging conclusion that Kamla was no more guilty than they themselves.
