After his wife dies during childbirth, Mohan begins to hate his daughter Uma. The situation worsens when she falls in love with Ashok, her fiance’s friend.
Set in the backdrop of a fractured father-daughter relationship, Anupama is a sentimental tale about searching for acceptance. Poetic black & white images and refreshing performances by Sharmila Tagore and Dharmendra make this film stand out within Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s incredible body of work.
