Paromitar Ek Din

Paromitar Ek Din ( Paromitar Êkdin, lit. "One day of Paromita's", English title: House of Memories) is a 2000 Indian Bengali drama film directed by Aparna Sen.


The film explores the dual themes of friendship and loneliness. The film starts at Sanaka's funeral where Paromita is invited too. Paromita goes into a flashback where it is shown that she was previously married to Sanaka's younger son, Biru. The mother-in-law and daughter-in-law duo, Sanaka (Aparna Sen) and Paromita (Rituparna Sengupta), despite differences in age, backgrounds and temperaments, build a strong bond together. But when Paromita's marriage to Biru breaks down, social mores prevent the women from remaining close friends. While Paromita marries Rajeev Shrivastav and begins a new life, her mother-in-law, Sanaka, is left heartbroken and alone and eventually falls seriously ill. When Paromita learns of her friend's deterioration, she is compelled to flout convention, and returns to nurse Sanaka on her deathbed. Sanaka dies, leaving her family shattered. The flashback ends, Paromita leaves the funeral and realizes that she and Rajeev are expecting their first child.
