Astitva (2000)

A submissive wife. A male chauvinist for a husband. The Indian double-think, which says it is okay for a man to have extramarital affairs because he is a man. And that it is the woman's duty to be subservient to her husband, let alone expect physical pleasure.

It is a journey of discovery for the woman, who, stifled in an unhappy marriage, realises that it is not wrong for a woman to satisfy her sexual urges.

In a role totally devoid of glamour, Tabu's histrionic skills got full expression. She proved that she is a class apart from the rest of her comtemporaries. Truly, this is acting for acting's sake.
