Rare poster featuring Suchitra Sen from the film ‘Mamta’

Directed by Asit Sen, Mamta is an adaptation of Sen’s earlier Bengali hit Uttor Phalguni. In both the Bengali and Hindi versions, Suchitra Sen plays the double role of the mother and daughter.

It is a story of the eternal struggle of the mother to bring up her child in a safe and secure environment, far away from her own miserable existence, even if that means staying away from her for ever.
This picture is from the book Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen Bengali Cinema’s First Couple.
