Amir Mohammad khan, Nur-E- Makbul, Mostaq Hossain


This Article highlights on three films by Rituparno Ghosh to delineate the love-family-affair-sexuality of the Bangali society. Rituparno manipulated the plot by Tagore and some distinguished writers in her film and successfully showed the heyday society, love, affair, adultery, physical relationships etc. this article is therefore a bridge between Literature and Sociology to be able to show the Sociological concepts in Literary Art. To the film-maker family is the circle of reproduction and it is the base to preserve gene in the society. In her age Rituparno showed that man married and adopted wife only to get a baby-son and that was very common in the patriarchal society. She showed how the newly educated people got deprived from romantic love because of their underage wives and marriage in adolescence. She showed how the psychological and inner conflicts of young people brought adultery in the society. The typical alienation of modern man and woman, the episode of illegal physical relationships by young people at the loss of ethics are shown beautifully. She introduced us with the unsocial offences like rape and at the same time beautifully pictured the psychological reasons behind that kind of offences. She didn’t cease in showing the outer world rather she pictured the inner struggle of human in a much different way. She described how power in the society brings about disparity and the presence of exercise of power is everywhere. Above all, we found the real nature of patriarchal society, imperialistic desire of man, status of woman in the society. She outstandingly came out of the social and religious restrictions, told the untold talks, showed the unshared scenes and revolted for a change in the society sothat we all become rational, realistic, and be careful about the matter of facts.
