In honor of the centenary of the writer Rabindranath Tagore's birth, Satyajit Ray made this feature based on three Tagore stories. The first story, The Postmaster, concerns a young man from Calcutta who lands a job in a remote village. He is looked after by an orphan girl, and his eventual departure causes an unexpected tragedy. Aparna Sen stars in the comedy Samapti (The Conclusion), a kind of Indian Taming of the Shrew in which a village tomboy revolts against an arranged marriage on the night of her wedding. Monihara (Bejewelled Obsession, or The Lost Jewels), originally the second story, is a chilling study of a childless woman's infatuation with jewelry, and her return after her death to frighten her husband.
