Synopsis

This film is an adaptation of a story called THE SHROUD written by India’s most famous and respected writer Munshi Premchand. It is the story of two poor characters Ghisu and Madhav who are very lazy. Ghisu is the father and Madhav is the son. Both just relax and rest all the time. They don’t go for work until they have nothing to eat. Wife of Madhav, Kamla is pregnant and is in labor pain. They both have no money for her treatment. Next morning, she dies due to the lack of treatment. After the death they have to arrange money for her funeral. They beg money from some landlords and neighbors and collect some amount. They go to buy a Shroud for her funeral in a city nearby but before purchasing the shroud they spend the money for drink and eat roasted chicken. Rest of the money is looted by some corrupt policemen. It’s late in the night. They both are drunk. Father becomes philosopher and tells his son insignificance of life and of course all the customs after death including putting a shroud on the corpse, which will ultimately burn with the body.
Next day when they wake up late in the morning, they both notice a baby girl left near them in the night. They both exchange looks and both are confused about this boomerang in their lives and the story ends.
