Bimala and Sundip's Relationship Blossoms
In the film by Satyajit Ray- The Home and The World, The dynamic between Bimala and Nikhil sheds light on how women would need (patriarchal) permission from their husbands to join the nationalist battle. This necessary permission is a miniature version of colonial control that reminds us of the dichotomous categories established under colonial authority. Sundip, on the other hand, is genuinely surprised (though pleased) that a female member of the Swadeshi movement has expressed interest in joining. However, we would be mistaken to attribute his joy to the symbolic significance of the action itself (Hazra, Anindo. “Slides for Week 6.”). Instead, Bimala's initial significance as a potentially prominent activist is reduced throughout the film, from a reluctant (but intuitive!) advisor to negotiation with her spouse (negotiating Sundip's point of view), then an emotional support mechanism, and lastly, a money-lender.
