Anutap is a heart-wrenching drama from 1992 that tells the story of a man named Suraj (Raj Babbar) who is struggling to come to terms with his wife's death. Suraj's wife, Sumitra (Debashree Roy), died due to complications during childbirth which resulted in their son's death as well. Suraj is left to grapple with his grief, pain, and guilt all by himself. He is completely shattered and finds it difficult to cope with the loss.

The movie starts with Suraj reminiscing about his past, the happy times he shared with his family, and the impending arrival of his first child. The mood is joyous and festive, but things take a turn for the worse when Sumitra's pregnancy turns out to be complicated, and she has to undergo an emergency C-section. While the baby's arrival brings joy to the family, it is short-lived as Sumitra's condition worsens, and she passes away.

Suraj is torn between his love for his wife and his guilt for not taking better care of her during the pregnancy. He blames himself for her death and becomes withdrawn and uncommunicative, even with his family members. His mother (Anup Kumar) tries to console him and help him come to terms with his loss, but Suraj refuses to be comforted.

As the story progresses, Suraj's brother-in-law (Anil Chatterjee) comes to visit the family and tries to convince Suraj to marry again. Suraj initially resists the idea, but eventually gives in and marries a young woman named Priti (Dola Banerjee) who is completely inexperienced in matters of the heart. Priti tries her best to get to know Suraj but finds him unresponsive and distant.

The movie delves into the intricacies of relationships, grief, and how each person deals with it in their way. Suraj's mother is shown as a strong-willed woman who refuses to be cowed down by tragedy and tries to bring Suraj and Priti together. Priti, on the other hand, is shown as a naive and innocent girl who tries to make a place for herself in Suraj's life but fails to understand the depth of his grief.

The movie's storyline is poignant and gripping, and the actors' performances are outstanding. Raj Babbar's portrayal of Suraj's grief and guilt is realistic and will make the audience empathize with his character. Debashree Roy's portrayal of Sumitra is impactful, and her character's death will leave the audience in tears. Anup Kumar's role as Suraj's mother is strong and relatable, and Dola Banerjee's portrayal of Priti is honest and vulnerable.

The movie's music is soulful and melodious, with touching lyrics and music composed by Bappi Lahiri. The songs 'Jiya Bekaraar Hai' and 'Dil Ki Tanhai Ko' are timeless classics and still hold a special place in the hearts of music lovers.

In conclusion, Anutap is a masterpiece that explores the complexities of human emotions and relationships. It is a thought-provoking movie that will make the audience reflect on the fragility of life and the importance of love and support during times of grief. It is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates good cinema and wants to experience a heart-breaking yet beautiful story.
