  • MADHU MALATI Alternative


A coming of age film: the two central characters are students who are encouraged by Professor Anil Sharma, teaching at his old college, to play Romeo and Juliet. In real life the students fall in love but are driven away by the traditional morality of the town. They flee, first to a big city and then on to Goa, where they are looked after by a Goan couple. The (ex) students realise they must go home and in so-doing have proved to themselves and the professor that they have now matured enough to have absorbed the lessons of life.
