    “Saptapadi” remains as the epitome of platonic love in the consciousness of every blue blooded Bengali for the past half a century. Ajoy Kar made this film in the early 1960’s (1962) & it remained as something more than history ….. “a legend for the forth coming ages.” “Saptapadi” is an outright example of how quality a commercially viable celluloid depiction can be. Be it editing, screenplay, camera work or music, “Saptapadi” haunts the audience in every department. The performances of Uttam Kumar as Krishnendu & Suchitra Sen as Rina Brown are arresting, attractive & mesmerizing. Chhabi Biswas as Uttam’s chauvinistic patriarch father & Chhaya Debi as Suchitra’s depleted, dejected mother are absolutely ominous. Tarun Kumar & the rest of the supporting cast give in quality performances too. The narration of the story is “Saptapadi’s” USP. The philosophy & ideology marketed through the film is also extremely tantalizing. Sequences like the enaction of OTHELLO (voice of UTPAL DUTTA) & the light & shade on the profile of Uttam Kumar while moving into a flash back are truly world class. Ajoy Kar’s screenplay deserve kudos. For this only a mundane novel (by Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay) acquires iconic heights. Finally the music by Hemanta Mukhopadhyay takes the film to the next level of imagination & romanticism. A must watch!
