One of the best films directed by Asit Sen, ‘Deep Jwele Jaai’ was a woman-oriented film. Suchitra Sen, the protagonist of the film had delivered a brilliant performance which somewhere touched a chord with the audience. Breaking the standard belief, she was able to prove that she did not need a male protagonist to show what she was worthy of.
Suchitra Sen worked as a nurse in a mental health institution. People who had been through emotional torment came there for treatment. While she was playing her part, she fell in love with one of the patients. Although, she was warned against any such involvement. The end came across to be very tragic as Suchitra Sen herself got admitted in the same hospital where she had been a nurse.
