Nashtaneer (Broken Nest) takes you into the tight world of Charu, who grows from child-bride to woman. Often ignored by her husband in favor of his business, she drifts into a poetic game with her brother-in-law.
Trying to imitate his literary style, she stumbles upon her own. To her consternation, her individual style alienates her brother-in-law, as he starts viewing her as a competitor, while she yearns for his approval.

As the jittery brother-in-law distances himself, her husband begins to woo her in a clumsy attempt at poetry. She rebuffs him absent-mindedly, leaving him deeply wounded, leaving her raw & vulnerable and ending in a chain of events that have you feeling for every character.
It is a nuanced interplay, a tug-of-emotions that constantly leaves you at the edge of ‘If only…
This is sheer mastery in words.

Translated later into the movie Charulata. Directed by S. Ray. 1 2
