Where did you watch this movie?

In her comeback film, Padmini plays the suffering Meenakshi, the eldest daughter in a large family. To look after her handicapped sister and her medical-student brother Balu (Muthuraman), she spurns a rich lover since his property is under litigation, preferring the financial security promised by an ageing widower (Radha). The man’s son disapproves and becomes a cab driver, while the widower’s daughter (Vijayanirmala) falls in love with Balu. Known for its unusually bold dialogues explicitly addressing women’s repression, the film boasted one song hit, Kalamithu kalamithu (sung by P. Susheela). B.A. Subba Rao’s Pinni (1967) is the Telugu version.
