Story


Adhikar is a 1938 Indian Bollywood social film released on 1938. The film is directed by Pramathesh Barua.

Melodrama about lineage and property questions. Nikhilesh (Barua) loves heiress Indira (Jamuna). A poor orphan girl, Radha (Menaka Devi), arrives claiming to be Indira's stepsister and therefore part inheritor of the family estate. Indira agrees to share her inheritance but then Radha makes a play for Nikhilesh. Ultimately, Radha turns out to be the real and sole heir. Love proves to be stronger than material possession as Indira and Nikhilesh get married and Radha finds happiness with Ratan, a man she had known and loved during her days of poverty. As each character returns to the class of his/her birth, the message hammered home is a warning to people never to transcend their social status.

As each character returns to the class of his/her berth, the message hammered home is a warning to people never to transcend their social status. Barua continues his emphasis on the contrast between poverty and wealth, stylising the opulence of the wealthy interiors. Radha becomes unnatural away from the realism of her slum while Indiras problem, threatened with the potential loss of her property, is seen mainly as one of alienation. The film also continues Baruas fascination with showing the urban-rural (read modern-traditional) split through the contrasting personalities of two women, a device inagurated in Devdas (1935) and repeated even in his last major film film Shesh Uttar/Jawab (1942), although Adhikar is probably the most confused and cynical of its many versions.
