Based on a novel by Rabindranath Tagore, directed by Rituparno Ghosh and produced by Subhash Ghai, NOUKADUBI is about a tender romance blossoming in Kolkata between law student Ramesh and his friend's sister Hemnalini....展开The romance is nipped suddenly when his father sends an urgent and mysterious summons from his village home. There, the dutiful son is peremptorily ordered to marry Susheela, daughter of a hapless widow. Ramesh refuses, confesses that his heart belongs to another. But the widow's fervent plea softens him ultimately. And he concedes, albeit with a heavy heart. The wedding takes place with due ceremony, and Ramesh sets out with his bride on a river boat journey back to Kolkata, a journey that will change everything.
