Go down if you want to read story of Ahalya mentioned in Ramayana and plot of and connection with Sujoy Ghosh’s Ahalya.

Radhika Apte starrer short film Ahalya is a contemporary take on a Hindu legend about infidelity.

The film takes elements from the mythological story of Ahalya from Ramayana but crafts a modern version of it with a spin. In the original tale the young and beautiful Ahalya is seduced by Indra (the king of the gods), and is cursed by much older husband sage Gautama to turn into a stone. But in the retelling of the story in the film, the punishment is visited on the character based on Indra alone, while the woman is shown to be an accomplice in the seduction game.

In Hindu mythology , there are various versions of Ahalya’s, Gautam and Indra’s sex triangle story. The most widely-known version is from Ramayana.

Mythological Story:

It is said that Ahalya was created by the god Brahma as the most beautiful woman. Ahalya, a young beautiful woman married to a much older sage Gautama. Indra sees her and becomes lust-addled. When Gautam leaves his home, Indra appears, disguised as Gautam, and takes Ahalya into bed makes love. Ahalya realises she’s been cheated when the real Gautam returns home and the fake Gautam is still in her bed. Furious at the betrayal, Gautam curses Indra to turn into a cat and Ahalya into stone for 60000 years. Ahalya turned into stone and regained her human form by touch of lord Rama’s feet.

Ahalya directed by Sujoy Ghosh

Ghosh’s retelling appears to be a “bold”, modern version – an Ahalya who doesn’t melodramatically weep because she’s had sex with a man other than her husband, an Ahalya with a touch of evil in her.

    This is so far my best pick from all the good movies here.May be I am biased being a woman but I luv the concept.In old times Ahalya got punished for a crime done by Indra not because of her infidelity .Here also in this story Ahalya is innocent and culprit is Indre & Sadhu.Indre putting eye on another wife and Sadhu because he is using other men to show his wife that he is still capable.Ahalya doesn’t become stone but Indre(Justice).But my Question is “Is Indre the real culprit Or Is it Sadhu?”.
