Ek aur Panchvati: A flick which still moves people
Ek Aur Panchvati, a film made more than a decade ago, still reverberates in the hearts of people. This was reflected at a function by FLO. The guests exhorted the producer of the film to re-release the film.
EK AUR PANCHVATI, a film based on Dr Kusum Ansal’s celebrated book by the same name, written 20 years ago, finds a responsive chord even today.

This became evident at a function organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) ladies organisation, also known as FLO, today (May 12). The members and guests urged Dr Shobha Doctor, producer of the film, to explore the possibility of re-releasing the film. The movie evocatively tells the story of a young woman’s inner struggle to break-free from the man-woman stereotypical relationship and find peace for herself.

“I am trying hard for the past six months to re-purchase the rights for Panchavati, which I had sold 20 years ago for lack of storage facilities,” Doctor said. Commenting on today’s audience, she said, “Although today’s viewers are very selective and commercial cinema has greater appeal, I am determined to buy back the film’s rights.”

The function was addressed by actress Dipti Naval, who played the lead role of Saadhvi in Panchvati.

Anuradha Goel, president of FLO, said, “FLO in its silver jubilee year has decided to start a special series highlighting the exceptionally talented members of the organisation. Dr Kusum Ansal, past president of FLO and a writer for over three decades, is the first member in this series.”

She said that the idea was to discuss how education and advanced thinking has changed the mindset of women and how a situation related to women’s issue is handled today as compared to two decades ago.
