Capsule Review: A progressive drama, Anuradha, has stood the test of time with remarkable ease. The core of the theme—what Mallika Sherawat did in Murder 44 years later, described as the abject loneliness of a married woman—is splendidly intact. Leela Naidu plays a promising singer who gives up her art to be by her village-doctor husband, Balraj Sahni’s side. Soon a looming disenchantment sets in as the doctor devotes all his time caring for the sick and ill, unheedful of his own wife’s wounded heart and self- worth.
