Avishkar - Movie

 1974. Hindi. One of Basu Bhattacharya's trilogy on relationships. It is a story of a marriage told over the period of an evening and ending the next morning. An ad executive Amar (Rajesh Khanna) is facing the hard realities of a marriage that has lost its lustre, and on the evening of his wedding anniversary, takes up an offer from a divorced colleague of his to go watch a movie. He walks out, buysflowers, and when he goes home, finds his wife (Sharmila Tagore) entertaining a common friend. He throws the flowers away and feigns not remembering the date. They spend a strained night recollecting the events that led to their love affair culminating in their marriage and then the problems of the marriage. The morning brings new hope though. Very different in style, almost like a foreign film. Loved it.
