New role



Urmila Matondkar: no glamour doll

AMRITA PRITAM'S novel on Partition, Pinjar, is debutant Bollywood director Chandraprakash Dwivedi's prized catch of sorts.

The subject will have a contemporary appeal, as Dwivedi calls the shots on the big screen. After his successful small-screen romance with Chanakya, the director has Gulzar and Uttam Singh providing the melodic score for Pinjar. Dwivedi's challenge lies in the fact that such a serious Partition saga is to be capsuled in a saleable Bollywood format.

While the camera captures the picturesque old-time splendour of Amritsar, Urmila sheds her sizzling commercial tag and dons the role of a Punjabi belle. And Sanjay Suri plays poet Ramchand.
