Hullo Atuldom

Smita Patil (17th October 1955-13th December 1986) was an unusual actor much in the same template as Shabana Azmi if one may say so. She did justice to all the characters she was offered. One can distinctly remember her act in “Arth” as a person who was obsessed and insecure about her lover. Or her simply -being a prop-for-the-hero role in movies like Shakti, Namak Halal, Badle Ki Aag, Ghungroo etc. And we cannot forget her movies like Ardh Satya, Bazaar, Mirch Masala, Bhumika, Bhavani Bhavai, Umbartha (the last two movies mentioned were dubbed from Gujarati & Marathi respectively.) Umbartha was Subah in Hindi.

Smita Patil’s career spanned from 1974- 1989. Around 10-15 of her movies were completed and released after her death.
Remembering Smita Patil on her anniversary today with this song by Lata Mangeshkar from Subah (Umbartha 1982). The lyricist for this song is Narendra Sharma & music is by Hridayanath Mangeshkar.

For this movie Smita won the Marathi Rajya Chitrapat Puraskar for Best Actress.

This is a brief synopsis of the movie taken from Wikipedia. (I am resorting to it as I don’t want to go wrong about a movie I saw many years back)

Umbartha (translation: Threshold) is a 1982 Marathi film produced by D. V. Rao and directed and co-produced by Dr. Jabbar Patel. The film is a story of a woman’s dream to step outside the four walls of her home and bring change in the society. Smita Patil played the lead protagonist in the film for which she won. The film was adjudged as the Best Feature Film in Marathi at the 29th National Film Awards for “a sincere cinematic statement on the theme of a woman seeking to establish her identity by pursuing a career, even at the risk of alienation from her family”. The film is based on a Marathi novel “Beghar” (translation: Homeless) by Shanta Nisal and was also simultaneously made in Hindi as Subah with the same cast.

Sulabha Mahajan (played by Smita Patil) is a woman who dreams to step out of the four walls of the house, assume greater responsibility as a citizen and play an important role in shaping the society. She has passion to do something constructive for the abused, assaulted, neglected and traumatized womenfolk of the society she lives in. She gets a job offer as Superintendent of a Women’s Reformatory Home in a remote town of Sangamwadi. The job offer raises objections from her lawyer husband Subhash (played by Girish Karnad) and conservative mother-in-law who refuse to understand her need to move to the town and work for rehabilitation of the women. But her sister-in-law supports her by offering help in looking after her young daughter Rani. Determined Sulabha then goes ahead with her dream job.

She meets various challenges in her new endeavor. She starts with bringing discipline in the Home and also discovers frauds that take place there. But she is not helped by the managing committee which is filled with selfish and careless people. She hence decides to take steps against their sanction. She starts some classes to educate willing women and also marries off one of the inmates in order to give a new start to her life. She discovers how a local MLA Bane has been regularly using the inmates of the home to satisfy his sexual needs. Two of the inmates decide to run away but are forcefully brought back to the home. They both commit suicide by burning themselves. Sulabha is then questioned by committee and newspapers for her improper control on the home. An administrative enquiry is set up against her. It is then that she decides to resign and give up all her work and return home.

When she returns to her home she is happily welcomed by her sister-in-law but not so much by her mother-in-law. She then comes to know that her husband Subhash has been involved with another woman in her absence. His betrayal changes her mind and she again sets off to follow her dream work.

The film had Girish Karnad playing her husband, Shrikant Moghe (brother in law) Ashalata Wabgaonkar as her sis-in-law, Daya Dongre and a whole lot of Marathi actors of that time (if I am not wrong Kusum Kulkarni played the mother-in-law). Remembering a highly talented Smita today (13 december 2017) on her anniversary.
