is the tragedy of our society. In male dominated society the girls suffer the
most. Male normally takes no responsibility in such situation and it is the
female who has to face all criticisms. In case of divorce, we normally blame

the female becomes the target as it she has dragged the male towards her. Rituparna Sengupta has portrayed this
reality very successfully in film Akarshan.
