Overview: Parineeta

A timeless love story from the master storyteller of Bengal Set in early twentieth century Kolkata, Parineeta (Espoused) is the unforgettable story of a child-woman's intense and bittersweet romance. Lalita, an orphaned girl who lives with her uncle, considers herself betrothed to Shekhar, her benefactor and guardian. After several failed attempts, Lalita finally gets the egotistical Shekhar to admit that he reciprocates her feelings. However, tensions erupt between Shekhar's prosperous father and Lalita's poor but principled uncle, and the situation is further complicated by the arrival on the scene of Girin, a mild-mannered and eligible bachelor, who is attracted to Lalita. The lovers' world is turned upside down, and Shekhar and Lalita find themselves estranged. Years later, they meet again, and the story takes another unexpected turn??? Parineeta is a classic that has captured the imagination of generations of readers. This new translation, published to coincide with Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film, will delight Saratchandra's fans, as well as those who are not familiar with the writer's works.

  1.  Story Of Love, Understanding And Misunderstanding 23 November, 2013 On
    Songs : Beautiful

    Acting : Marvelous (Lolita, Shekhar and Girish all of them)

    Storyline: Based on a famous novel with the same name

    Direction: Superb

    Continuity : You don't get bored even for a minute.

    Rating : Must see for all

    Parineeta means a married women. Story is about 3 main characters. two men and a woman. men - Shekhar (Saif Ali Khan) and Girish (Sanjay Dutt). woman and the centre of the theme - Lolita (Vidya Balan). The story is about character, belief, trust and attitude. Lolita lives next door to Shekhar. Shekhar's father is very rich and greedy. Lolita's father has taken a big amount of loan from Shekhar's father in lieu of which Shekhar's father wants to grab the house of Lolita.

    This is one side. Shekhar has an intimacy towards Lolita. For a marriage in the neighborhood, Lolita comes to Shekhar's house to take him there. Shekhar puts a chain in her neck. This is so auspicious day that any man if puts a chain (treated as mangalsutra) in a woman's neck becomes her husband. So lolita becomes PARINEETA right at that moment. and she surrenders herself to Shekhar.

    Shekhar who is not too brave to tell his family that he has married Lolita, Shekhar who knows his family will not accept Lolita (specially his father, who has to sell his marriageable son), Shekhar who is shown as a bit supressed character , that Shekhar who could not do all that could accepts Lolita as his wife and they have sex. (Saif has matured in acting a lot!)

    Then comes the real gutsy character Girish from London. a very rich man. (Sanjay Dutt has started showing his age now). Lolita is shown as such a character that anyone will love her. So Girish also starts loving her. Girish clears off all the loan of Lolita's father and Shekhar's father's dreams of acquiring that house get shattered. Lolita had gone to Shekhar's house to take money from him but could not talk to her as he was pulled away by his father. Shekhar's father blames Lolita that Lolita has sold herself to Girish to take money from him for clearing off loan. Lolita's father gets shocked and seriously ill. Girish takes the whole family out of india to get him treated in a good hospital.

    Shekhar also misunderstands all this and takes Lolita wrong. Then a news comes to Shekhar that Girish has married Lolita. After marriage they are coming to their house back. And there spurs the character of Girish and mystery opens up. Girish, who loved Lolita and wanted to marry her married her sister instead because Lolita was already a PARINEETA of Shekhar. Lolita was not sure if she will live with Shekhar or not. but she had taken herself as his wife for lifelong. Girish's love and respect was supreme. Lolita's respect for the relation she had with Shekhar was supreme. And the misunderstanding and doubt of Shekhar that Lolita is a lost character was supreme.

    Now when Shekhar comes to know that Lolita has sacrificed herself only just because of him, he goes against his father and with the support of his mother brings lolita to her house as his PARINEETA.

     Sweet and Romantic! 14 May, 2013 On
    Am glad that I read Parineeta before watching the Bollywood version of the novel written by Saratchandra Chattopadhyaya (translated by Malobika Chaudhuri). It is a simple, cute tale of love between Lalitha and Shekar set in the early 20th century in Calcutta. Short and sweet, this novel can be easily read in an hour. It was unbelievable that the protagonists are only 14 and 25 years old in the novel, but given the time period the novel was set in it does make sense.
