Plot: When the debt of a deceased father takes an emotional toll on the son's family, how can he ever repay it? Can clearing this debt give his father's soul rest and the living peace?

Review: It is Nitish Bharadwaj's directorial debut and he sure makes an earnest and winning entry with Pitruroon, which is based on Sudha Murthy's novel. The film is an emotional journey that sees Venkatesh Kulkarni (Sachin Khedekar) make a promise to fulfill his father's last wish; this he does when during the shraadh rituals, a crow refuses to touch the 'pind '. As soon he makes this promise the crow reaches out for the 'pind' and thus begins Venkatesh's journey into his father's life.

A chance journey into a village sees the suave, city bred Venkatesh bump into his look alike - a rustic and endearing Sangeetappa. Curiosity takes him to his home where he encounters Sangeetappa's widowed mother Bhagirathi (Tanuja). They share an uncanny connect, which sees Bhagirathi sharing her entire life's story with this total stranger. As the story unfolds Venkatesh begins to find answers behind this widow's peaceful gaze, which at times he finds almost condescending. On his journey to clear his father's debt, he finds his father's lost love, his only treasure - a diary and other things which leave his family and his mother distraught.

If the audience feels the pain and anxiety of cherished secrets and unfulfilled desires all through the film, it's because the lead actors - Sachin and Tanuja have done such fabulous jobs. While a good performance from Sachin is a given, it's seeing Tanuja after so many years that makes you want to thank Nitish Bharadwaj! We get to see a fantastic actress in a role that's challenging but which Tanuja does with elan.

When was the last time you saw an ageing actress as the lead on a film poster? But here is Tanuja shining like a bright star in this film letting her soulful eyes do most of the talking. With some wonderful camera work by Mahesh Aney and lilting music by Kaushal Inamdar, Pitruroon is one film that stays with you long after you leave the dark cinema hall.
