NAALU PENNUNGAL (Four Women)
Kerala's renowned Adoor Gopalakrishnan's tenth feature is divided into four segments. The Prostitute is on a woman (Padmapriya) who gives up being a street prostitute when she finds a decent lover; but lewd intent and the law catch up with them. The Virgin follows a farmhand's resourceful only daughter (Geetu Mohandas), who is devoted to her ageing parents. Her brief marriage finds her back at the parental home, her character and future in question.
