The collective radiance of Bimal Roy's striking imagery, S D Burman's expressive score and Nutan's potent realism continues to shine bright as ever.
Symbolic and layered, Bandini strives to reveal the unpredictable facets of human nature, how its blacks and whites makes gray.
Bandini is essentially a powerful love story, sans the rosiness understood to be associated with the genre. Instead, it is about a girl, serving time for a murder she knowingly committed in a moment of insane rage, her redemption and eventual resolve when life asks her to make a choice between the erratic love that tampered her future and the compassionate hand willing to overlook her past, she decides to follow the signs of her heart.
