Aadhe Adhure (The Incomplete Ones) is the story of life in contemporary society. It is about a middle class family on the brink of collapse.
Savitri, a middle-aged woman, is dissatisfied with her circumstances - an unemployed son, a promiscuous teenage daughter and above all a husband who has failed to provide her emotional and financial security. She seeks to fulfill her emotional needs in relationships outside of her marriage, only to realize that men are the same beneath different faces. What makes Mohan Rakesh's portrait of Savitri (one of Hindi theatre's first feminist icons) so gripping is that one is never sure whether he admires her tenacity or whether he suggests that she is a woman caught in her destiny in the manner of a tragic Greek heroine.
Amol Palekar, as a Director, is specially known for his sensitive portrayal of women, his selection of classic stories from Indian literature, and his perceptive handling of progressive issues. His film Daayraa (The Square Circle) was chosen as one of the top ten best films of 1996. His film “Paheli” was nominated as an official Indian entry for the 2006 Oscar Awards. He also won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in English for Quest in 2006.
