Synopsis : Saptapadi is one of the greatest blockbuster in Bengali film history. Directed by Ajay Kar, it is based on the story written by Tarashankar Bandhopadhay. Uttam Kumar plays the role of a medical student, who falls in love with an Anglo Indian girl - Rina Brown played by Suchitra Sen. Uttam Kumar?s father Chabi Biswas, being a orthodox Hindu Brahmin could not accept a Hindu marrying a Christian and begged his son before Rina Brown. Rin Brown sacrificed her love and Uttam Kumar after converting himself into a Christian dedicated his life as a doctor who helped the victims of second world war which took place at that time. At the end of Chabi Biswas realised that human attachment cannot be obstructed with the barriers of religion and glorified the sacrifice of Rina Brown. Uttam Kumar treated Rina Brown after she was severely injured by bomb blast. Romance was given a different dimension by Ajoy Kar in Saptapadi which can be categorised as one of the most refined cine-classic created during the golden age. The play Othello picturised in the film acted out by Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen and the playback provided by Utpal Dutta and Jennifer Kapoor was another grand creation in the same film. Uttam kumar?s make up with beard in the role of the Christian doctor who had renounced desires, is probably the best make up ever given to Uttam Kumar in his life. Suchitra Sen?s performance and Chabi Biswas?s acting was as majestic as the dynamic camera work in the film.
