1.EXT. AN OLD HOUSE .

EVE 1
From a blank screen with a background sound suggesting a heavy
downpour of rain a title appears "Jc·o Loo".
Fade in on an extreme close up of a woman's eye. A tear rolls
down her cheek and camera follows the tear drop.Suddenly a
slash of rain hits her face. Cut from extreme close up to a
mid-shot.Her hair and face are drenched with rain water mixing
with her tears. She doesn't move.Just fixed her looks in to
nothingness.
She is RAMA a 23-25 year old young sensuous woman in her royal
blue saree. Siting on the elevated place in the right side of
court yard of the house.
Along with another whiff of air along with rain slashing on
Rama's face the house door opens with a big sound.
A skinny and wicked looking old woman in her 70's walks out.
Rushes towards her left where sarees are hanging on a thread
for drying.looks at Rama sitting little away.. (track shot

Rama continues to look at the rain. From the edge of the roof
water is dripping like tears. Windows shouseter with wind.Rama
wipes tears from her eyes. Ties up the untied hair. Her face
is now clearly seen.She takes her saree pallu to wipe her face
revealing her healthy breasts in her white blouse.
Rama gets up and walks up to the steps and stops to look at
the rain drops falling from edge of the roof. Puts her both
hand and collects rain water and looks at it. Her reflection
is hardly visible in the water and slowly water drains out
from her hand.
Suddenly next to Rama is the old woman with a steaming tea in
a chine ware glass. Rama is taken a back at once. Looks at the
old woman.
