A simple story of an illiterate woman totally faithful to a man whom she intensely love is how the director describes the film belying its emotional complexity that shows the internal conflict between a man and a woman. On the face of it, Rangi and Paddalu are a devoted, happily married couple living for each other. But when Paddalu scarpers with a boatmans cargo, Rangi, left behind, confesses that shes not his wife at all. She was acting as a decoy so he could get away with the booty intended for Paddalu.s other woman, a younger, more beautiful girl. Yet she says Paddalu is her man. Without me he cannot live. Why is she prepared to put her own life and liberty at risk for a man who treats her callously.
