A hypnotic and enigmatic ghost story derived from a Rajasthani folktale, Duvidha endures as a seminal contribution to the Indian cinema of the 1970s. A mischievous (and lonely) ghost seeking company fixates upon a beautiful young woman whose merchant husband is away on a five-year business trip (which began the day after their wedding!), so he transmutes himself into the man’s doppelganger. But the ghost’s plan goes awry when the husband finally returns home… A strikingly stylized synthesis of folklore and cinematic modernism, Duvidha is a singular work as attuned to spectral vibrations as it is the rhythms, rituals, and textures of quotidian life.
