Labor of Love (Asha Jaoar Majhe)

Asha Jaoar Majhe
Aditya Vikram Sengupta

A woman leaves home on her way to work. Her husband has just arrived home and gets ready to go to bed. The day unfolds in crosscut shots: she works, he sleeps. Half way through, they switch roles. The importance of their work becomes clear from minor topical asides: in today’s Calcutta, the crisis is causing mass unemployment. Only at the end of the day does the couple come together.
